Begala: Obama gets good marks for humor

I give President Obama an A for his press conference. He showed mastery on a wide range of issues - a rare and important skill.

Also, he was great at showing humor tonight - something he has stumbled over in the past. We all remember the mistake he made on Jay Leno, and his joking about Nancy Reagan in a way people found offensive.

But it's a sign of confidence to come back to something that didn't work the first couple times.

    Humor? Obama has next to no truly humerous traits. He's a bore.

    the president could literally spent the first 100 days in a coma and, as long as he was a democrat, Begala would have given him an A.

    Actually, the fact Obama wasnt given an A plus from this partisan hack speaks volumes about his real performance. Emmanuel is going to be angry he left off the plus, I'm sure it will come up when he is telling Begala what to say next.
