A warm embrace for President Obama

Talking Points Memo calls the photo from pool coverage of the president's visit to a Florida pizza restaurant the picture of the year.

From the pool report:

"Scott, what's going on man," Potus shouted as he came through the door. "Scott, let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I've ever seen."

Potus approached Van Duzer, 46, of Port St. Lucie, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 260 pounds.

"Everybody look at these guns," Potus said, pointing to Van Duzer's monstrous pectoral muscles. "If I eat your pizza will I look like that?"

The two men laughed. They embraced. Van Duzer lifed Potus a good foot off the ground.

"Look at that!" Obama exclaimed once back on firm ground. "Man are you a powerlifter or what?"
