No one ever accused RN of perfection. Throughout his career, reporters and cartoonists dwelt on his mistakes, his quirks, even his physical flaws: recall Garry Wills’s long, bizarre description of his face in Nixon Agonistes.

Let’s be honest: Barack Obama is better than you are.
He’s a better father — taking breaks from running the world to cheer on his daughters at soccer and basketball games.
He’s a better husband — zipping his wife off for dinner in New York and Paris.
He’s got a better diet — nibbling on vegetables from his homegrown garden to keep his love handles in check.
And he’s got a terrific jump shot.
You? Not so much.
