Obama: "The whole socialism argument, that doesn't fly"

Barack Obama joked around with Jon Stewart about the attacks against him, the Bradley effect and Florida voters, but they got to some serious subjects too.

If you missed it, here's Barack Obama's  appearance on "The Daily Show" Wednesday night. I generally think Jon Stewart's interviews are the weakest part of the show, but this one was good. My favorite part? Obama's admission that "there's a certain segment of hardcore Sean Hannity fans that probably wouldn't want to go have a beer with me." Their discussion of the Bradley effect is also pretty good.
