Watch: Barack Obama can instantly calm crying babies

Barack Obama may no longer be the mystical, flawless unicorn of a candidate he was to so many during the 2008 campaign, but occasionally he still manages to do something impossibly cool. Witness the above video, in which a fussy, bawling baby settles down the second she's picked up by the President.

Is there deep political meaning here? No. Is it adorable? Definitely.

I don't know what's more adorable -- the baby or the look exchange between Michelle and Barack once he starts holding the baby.
(also, love the article title)

Def. Michelle is very sexy and beautiful. Barack and Michelle are the U.S.'s hottest couple.

My guess is that he stunned the baby by explaining how his/her generation will still be paying on his moronic economic policies.
