Jon Stewart took some time out of his Daily Show program this week to discuss president-elect Obama’s actions as he prepares to take office January 20. Inexplicably, the analysis turned to Obama’s freakishly relaxed body language. “Know what this guy is getting for Christmas?” Stewart quipped incredulously, “Two wars and an economic meltdown.” And how does Obama seem to be taking this? He’s as “cool as ice!” Stewart marveled. Maybe this is because Obama’s got his political sound strategy down pat. As many cable news pundits have put it, Obama is set to keep his friends close, but his enemies closer–with the alleged offer of the Secretary of State post to former rival Hilary Clinton.
