Pete Wentz was "elated" Barack Obama won in 2008

Pete Wentz, bassist and lyricist for the band Fall Out Boy, wrote a Huffington Post article in 2009 about Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. He stated, “I’ve been a fan of Barack Obama’s for a while and, like everyone else, was elated when he won, and even more so when I had the privilege to meet him at the event. He’s an underdog, which is something I can relate to.”
