TINY BUBBLE:

Obama Lonely in Office, People Mag Says (CBS, 1/15/10)

"Early Show" co-anchor Harry Smith pointed out that the president talked a lot about "being in the bubble" of the powerful office.

Gleick called Barack's words on the subject "touching."

"He just talked about the loneliness of the job. And some of the loneliness, he embraces. He realizes that he has big decisions that he alone needs to make," she said. "But he misses being out among regular people."


One of the most conspicuous things about him pre-White House was that he had no friends nor even political allies, just people who used him as a vehicle for their ambitions.
