I think Obama has done a fantastic job of making the Presidency a more "human" role.
A few months ago, I was talking to a friend of mine who was high up in the Cruz campaign. I said, "you know what one of Cruz's issues is for me? He just doesn't seem like a guy that I would want to watch a game with."
I think a lot of that has come from Obama. I feel like we can disagree and still be friends. I'd watch a game with him and I feel like he might listen to me, even if we disagree with each other.
There are plenty of Dem and GOP politicians about whom I do not feel that way.
All of this was prompted by the fact that I saw Obama on Jimmy Fallon last night.
Here is a good clip (that was basically free advertising for his record, but as a marketer, I appreciate that!)
