A Jonas Brother for President?

nick-j-picNick Jonas, the youngest of the world famous Jonas Brothers singing trio, told a National Press Club audience on Monday he's "always had this dream of becoming president one day."

The 16-year-old singer, songwriter and actor was in Washington to raise awareness about type 1 diabetes, a disease he was diagnosed with in 2005. Earlier this year, he met President Obama as part of his diabetes work.

In an interview with Reuters, Jonas said his own presidential aspirations were not entirely a joke.

"As much as I joke about it and kind of say it to get a laugh, it is somewhat serious. I don't know if it will happen," he said.
