Bono meets with Barack Obama

U2's Bono met with Barack Obama on Tuesday to discuss foreign assistance to deal with poverty and global health problems. They also discussed the One Campaign which is a non-profit organization Bono helped form to combat Aids and global poverty.

The meeting took place in Washington D.C at Obama's Senate office.

Obama's spokesperson said that the two met for about half an hour. He said that "...Bono was making rounds on Capitol Hill to build support for the One campaign."

"He particularly wanted to meet with Senator Obama since he's a member of the Foreign Relations Committee and has been active on international poverty and global health issues."

Bono has apparently also met with other Presidential hopefuls, John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Mitt Romney.
