Obama, Tapper, Condit — and Baskin-Robbins

_2F_images_2F_origs_2F_593_2F_baskin_robbins_vanilla_ice_cream_cone_10_x8_oil_on_canvas.jpgA riddle: What do President Obama, ABC News White House correspondent Jake Tapper, and former Rep. Gary Condit all have to do with Baskin-Robbins ice cream?

Answer: Obama once worked at a Baskin-Robbins in high school;it was his first job. (Check out an Access Hollywood interview here. “Everyone should like ice cream except daddy,” says first daughter Sasha. Obama admits he has no sweet tooth – ice cream isn’t really his thing.)

Tapper also worked for the ice cream giant for two years in high school, which he told C-SPAN’s Steve Scully in a radio interview Monday. “I have no idea why anyone puts malt into anything,” he told Scully, saying he’s a big fan of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

And Condit, after he left Congress, operated two Baskin-Robbins franchises in 2005, which were later revoked by the Baskin-Robbins Corporation. (For those who don’t know of him, he had an affair with murdered intern Chandra Levy, yada yada, left Congress in a heap of trouble. And no, he was never accused of or charged with any crime.)
