WATCH: Obama’s final White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Obama’s rocked all of his 8 speeches at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. This year is full of occasions that will be his last in the White House. It took me a while to warm to him, but he’s certainly been one of the best US Presidents of my lifetime. He hasn’t got it all right, by any manner of means, but his tenacity in getting his healthcare reform through despite everything the Republicans threw at it was particularly commendable.

Anyway, this speech doesn’t quite have a Lion King moment, but the bit where he has a go at Prince George was hilarious.

    Without knowing a lady’s age it is difficult to comment, but there are two teats
    1) Do you remember where you were when you heard that John F Kennedy had been shot? (I was in the library at school doing my homework, I did not believe it);
    2) What do you think of the help from F D Roosevelt?

    There is life after the Presidency. The worldwide elimination of Guinea-worm was well worth achieving Jimmy Carter should be a candidate for sainthood. Not a rich man.
    The next President “whoever she is” has not yet formed a cabinet. In the USA they are entirely appointed. Someone with relevant experience and a worldwide view would be useful as Secretary of State.
