In case you needed more proof that our president is awesome, check out this clip of Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the most recent round of “Star Trek” movies, describing the first time he met President Obama on the campaign trail. “He gave me the … Vulcan salute,” Quinto explains, “And I was like, ‘I really want to hang out with you so much more now. You’re cool.'” Sigh. This story warms my nerdy, liberal heart. [Team Coco]
