Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton told the New York Post that the Jiggaman may be officially joining the Obama campaign team in 2012

The brains behind President Obama‘s 2008 election campaign are already strategizing how to re-energize the youth and minority vote for 2012. Their answer: partner with Jay-Z. “I can’t believe you’ve finally heard the chatter about him replacing Larry Summers,” Deputy White House Press Secretary William Burton told us. “In all seriousness, keep in mind he was pretty active during the 2008 election, so I don’t think it’d surprise anyone that he would be involved again. But it’s a little premature.” An insider says strategists feel comfortable with Jay-Z because he’s a respectable celebrity who can reignite their message of hope.”
