President Obama Visits Jon Stewart

As you may already know, next weekend in Washington D.C., there will be a Rally to Restore Sanity to the political discourse in our country. Well, it seems that last night the rally featured its opening act: President Barack Obama paid a visit to the Daily Show and did something we haven't seen politicians do in a very long time: present a coherent and reasonable set of ideas understood in the context of realistic expectations.

In the interview, President Obama argues that although we haven't seen the substantive change that many people thought would happen (magically perhaps?), it's the structural changes that have been put in place, despite strong political resistance, that will become the condition that allows such substantive changes to take place over time.

I wonder what 10% (of what might not sound so peachy) pundits are going to focus on and sensationalize... any bets?
