Presidents have to be ready for anything at any time. And Nick Jonas, as any Jonas fan worth their weight in Jonas tees knows, has a fascination with the presidency: his Jonas code name is Mr. President, and his brand-new side-project band is even called Nick Jonas & The Administration -- his debut solo album, Who I Am, drops February 2, 2010.
