Pin it

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.
