    PINKERTON: There are a few challenges.



    PINKERTON: I'll let Ellen --


    RATNER: No, you go. You go.

    PINKERTON: I was going to say, he's under house arrest in Britain. This is going to be little bit of a challenge to make this a show from some --


    PINKERTON: -- British estate.

    RATNER: First of all, it's only 10 one-half-hour programs. I have to be honest. I share an office with Thom Hartmann, who does a show on RT, so I want to be open about that.

    On Tuesday night, cameras and mics caught Mr. Obama telling Secretary of Defense to Leon Panetta, "Good job tonight." Of course, later, details came out about the successful rescue of an American and her Danish co-worker held hostage in Somalia. The mission, another success for U.S. Special Forces.

    The next big moment came when the president gave a big hug to courageous Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who survived a gunshot to the head a little more than a year ago. Ms. Giffords resigned from Congress in an emotional ceremony Wednesday.

    All cameras and attention then focused on the president's speech. But before his arrival, the media kept a watchful eye on the vice president, giving big shout outs to his friends in the room, enjoying his time standing up in front of all his peers, hanging out with the speaker of the House --


    -- keeping it loose, telling jokes. Buzzfeed.com says photos like these prove Joe Biden is the ‘drunk uncle of the United States.’
