A sort of valentine for Obama, from Peggy Noonan in the Wall Street Journal, no less.
He is appreciative of his staff's efforts. "When you're working hard for your country and you know [he cares] it is huge." How does he show his thanks? "It's a little like a basketball game—'Thanks for that, I know what you did.' It's not a note or a pat or a call, it's a guy-to-guy thank you, 'That's cool, that's good.' You think, 'My coach got that I worked my ass off.'"
"As a person he is just an incredible human being who you can't help but love."
