Could he have one day become President?
The Great Impostor (1961)
Starring Tony Curtis
Recently Leonardo DiCaprio did a similar film and Catch Me If You Can did not take as lighthearted an approach as The Great Imposter. But the two should be viewed side by side for comparison. Leo's Frank Abegnale is also spot-on, but I think I like Tony Curtis's performance a tad better.
Catch Me If You can

Is he running for president or something? I dont get it....
Or maybe youre saying that Obama took a page from Abagnales book and just ran with it. It is an amazing story, and we can learn a lot from it too. Perhaps the student has surpassed the master???
