JFK once remarked that his youth in ascending to the Presidency would create a problem at the other end: “at an awkward age, too old to begin a new career and too young to be writing my memoirs.” Obama, if he and we are lucky, will be facing the same problem, with the additional handicap of having written a memoir already.
He could always go into stand-up.
A nine-second pause between the set-up and the punchline. And he brings it off, with just the right amount of mugging.
Oh yeah, and he’s also driving home the theme between now and November.
