There's something so odd about a celebrity doing something creative or personal. We marvel at actors who participate in crappy bands, and a President playing an instrument always makes headlines. It's some kind of spectacle. In this case though, it gives a surreal glimpse in to the life of a figure who I have only read about. And even if the show was a set-up, which it surely was, it's interesting to see an almost mythological figure as a real person.

Jesus wept. I had NO IDEA that tricky Dick was a keys man. I am
having a hard time believing that is for real. It makes him more
sympathetic than even I am comfortable with.

It has always bothered me that Condoleezza Rice can play Brahms'
piano music... That's just not right. It's OK for Bill Clinton to
hack at the sax, but politicians having semi-serious chops is not OK.
It's disturbing. Just imagine GWB taking a try at Chopin. The world would explode.
