(Newser) – Barack Obama has made some mistakes since becoming president—but none so bad as leaving Bill Clinton alone at a press conference. “You’re gonna leave that guy, the Michael Jordan of press briefings, in charge while you go to a Christmas party?” asked an incredulous Jon Stewart last night on the Daily Show. “You know, Mr. President, that’s the kind of cool confidence that borders on delusional.”

Cutting to a video of Clinton’s performance, Stewart gasped as the ex-prez immediately got comfy. “Look at this guy, it’s like he never left! He’s doing the creepy smile, he’s doing a little knuckle point, a little lip-biting … It’s a virtuoso performance! Obama, what are you doing? You think the kinda handsome guy who replaced Clooney on ER ever let that motherf***** back on the set? Not a chance!” Click for more Daily Show.
