It Depends On Your Definition of the Word 'Likeable'

I about tossed my Wheaties when I read this headline in the paper this morning:

Obama's advisers bank on his 'Mr. Likeable,' 'regular guy' appeal to frustrated Americans

Are we talking about the same Obama? Mr. Aloof?

Mr. Richard Milhous Mean?

You want a man of the people?  Remember this photo of George W. Bush hugging a soldier aboard a commercial flight bound for the war zone, taken at the height of the War on Terror?

That's a kind and loving president of the United States.

Obama?  Likeable?  In your dreams.
