5. I like that one, too, but what the commentator missed...

...was that the President has on a white shirt and tie, and a bowl of soup in front of him. that's definately a "better safe than sorry" situation.

2. love it but they missed one of my favorites - Obama caught wiping the table at the ice cream shop

Not manners in quite the same way as their set, but considerate.

here it is: from Callie Shell's page from the campaign:


"I loved that he cleaned up after himself before leaving an ice cream shop in Wapello, Iowa. He didn't have to. The event was over and the press had left. He is used to taking care of things himself and I think this is one of the qualities that makes Obama different from so many other political candidates I've encountered. Nov. 7, 2007."

3. Can you imagine Dubya doing that?
He would have made the biggest mess possible, and if he spilled some ice cream on his suit he would have used the nearest woman's skirt to wipe it up.
