    "Say something nice about Obama."

    This challenge came at a party from a good-natured self-described "rabid Obama supporter." Normally, when off the clock, I avoid this kind of stuff. How different is it to, say, approach a physician in a social setting and say: "Doc, my knee hurts in the morning. What do you think it is?" But the guy seemed nice enough.............


    ........................."So what's the answer?" he asked.

    "Well, back to my dad. Mind you, he does not read The Wall Street Journal or Investor's Business Daily or Forbes magazine. I recently asked him the same question.

    "'It seems to me the government's just too d--- big,' said my Depression-era/World War II-veteran father. 'I'd let people keep their own money. They'll figure it out. They always do.'"

    "But," I repeated, "Obama certainly is likable."
