Obama: Yes, I inhaled—that was the point

Please don't take this as an endorsement for Obama or his actions.

I'm posting this because (1) its a great response on Obama's part, (2) to allow you to feel superior because you never did anything stupid when young and (3) because I haven't seen anyone else post about it.
Earlier this week in New Hampshire Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama spoke candidly about his past experimentation with drugs and alcohol in high school, and on Saturday—after a question on medicinal marijuana—Obama was prodded a bit further and asked whether or not he had ever inhaled.

"I did," the senator from Illinois said to light applause. "It's not something I'm proud of. It was a mistake as a young man."

The question was a reference to a line made famous by former President Bill Clinton who, while admitting to trying marijuana, said he did not inhale.

"I never understood that line," Obama continued. "The point was to inhale. That was the point." Duh! [emphasis mine]
