3. Thanks!

I didn't catch the show, but I read about it here so I looked. And of course it was absolutely delightful, but I wasn't familiar with how and when the videos are available and whenever I looked they'd added more!

4. I know! It was a great interview - no big surprise!

And, surprisingly, didn't rehash all the unpleasantness we've been faced with in recent years, we've had it with that - it was just a delightful time spent reliving better days with our funny and charming president!

5. Indeed!



I have to wonder what happened between 2007/8 & now, that so many have become so racist? Is it because 44 was so amazing that the rural folks turned against all reason?

I love the stories about good luck charms!

7. They've apparently taken on the behavior of the former racist-in-chief

Either they were looking for his approval or he gave them permission to be open about it. Either way, there's no putting the genie back in the bottle and it's a tragedy for this nation. I saw "Eyes on the Prize" back in the '80s and thought we'd left those terrible times behind.

And this president is charming, funny and certainly one of our smartest. It wad so great to see him, especially after what we've been through for the past 4+years...

11. We need to see more of him right now, especially since we now have Joe Biden

The POTUS is a very exclusive club and it's tradition for a new president to call on his predecessors for experience and advice - regardless of party. LBJ called on Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter only had Nixon and Ford - and Ford stepped up the plate to help him deal with Congress since he had experience and President Carter had been governor. And they had been opponents! Yet they became lifelong friends. And we know that Clinton has been friendly with both Bushes - and even Michelle Obama is buddies with W! And we know how close Obama and Biden were. The former guy is the rare exception.

13. Wow! He sure could do that!

He is exactly what we need - since not only is he popular here, but internationally. Joe Biden sure has his plate full with the overwhelming mess that the former guy left behind, not just here, but internationally. President Obama could be very helpful in restring our relationships with our allies.

6. Silly me. I looked at how long the clips are and thought

these are just too long to watch. Clicked on the first and longest and couldn't stop until the end. Then it was on to all the rest and same thing.

Made my morning, thank you so much.

9. Made my morning to see him, too - exactly what we needed right now.

I especially loved the one about Bo. He didn't just mean so much to the family, but the rest of the country loved him and got to enjoy him, too...

14. Wonderful interview

During the Obama administration, my husband and I went through some very difficult times that led do a separation. We went through couples therapy for a year before we really understood how to appreciate one another and how much we loved each other. What the Obama’s showed was that, even when times are grueling, to treat each other well and with gratefulness.

As of now, we have been together for 28 years and going strong. Respect, honesty, and showing love for one another was the best medicine

I so admire President Obama and Michelle. The stress of being the first family must have really pushed the limits of frustration. But, they handled it with grace, class, and a very obvious love for one another.

15. Just saw my DVR'd copy and ABSOLUTELY LOVED HOW JAMES LET HIM TALK......

not like Stephen Colbert.......ugh, and I know Stephen is a gawd here, but in my book, he really stinks as an interviewer. JMHO.
