There are plenty of things that President Barack Obama has done that I'm not happy about, but for the most part, I think he's done well with the hand he was dealt. He inherited a country following eight years of Bush rule, and he has been blocked at every step, simply on principle. Even still, he was able to push through some much-needed health care legislation, credit card reforms designed to protect consumers, and recently killed the disastrous Keystone pipeline.


But putting all that aside, I have to admit that I also think he's a pretty damn cool guy. He seems to have a great relationship with his wife and children, still plays basketball with his old friends on a regular basis — and man, can the guy sing. Check out this clip from a recent speech he gave at the Apollo Theater in NYC.
