In praise of intelligence

My, but it was a joy to hear Obama take his time and choose exactly the right words on the White House lawn today when pressed for his opinion on the Tehran protests. When this president pauses, it's because he wants to get the right message across and avoid alienating potential allies. When the last one paused, it's because he had lost the right page in the Bumper Book of Big Words.

Call it shooting fish in a barrel, cheap point-scoring or what you will. I'm just happy to have an intelligent person in charge of the most powerful country on Earth.

(To say nothing of the lack of "regime change" talk. How times have changed.)
