Parks and Recreation closed out its season last night with a star-studded bang: from musicians most people have probably never heard of before but assume have some cache (here's lookin' at you, Kay Hanley), to Jon Hamm, to THE FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.

As a president, Barack Obama has often been criticized for his celebrity status. Critics argue that political leaders to be refined, dignified and sophisticated, rather than pals with athletes, musicians, and actors. Sophistication commands respect - something the US could clearly use more of on the world stage.
