(Newser) – Jon Stewart was back on The O'Reilly Factor the night after debating Common's White House appearance to talk about the 2012 election and President Obama. The Daily Show host admitted to Bill O'Reilly that Obama hasn't lived up to his expectations and that he would even consider voting against him if a Republican rival seemed willing and able to take the country in the right direction, Mediaite reports.

Stewart made it clear, however, that he's not exactly fired up about any of the Republican possibilities. Sarah Palin is "too thin-skinned," he said, while Newt Gingrich lacks charisma, and "his head is large enough that you imagine that there are great ideas in there, but it's so big its almost like they’re free-range ideas and I don’t know if he can actually gather them." Tim Pawlenty seems like a nice guy, Stewart said, and Mitt Romney looks the most like somebody you might find in a box labeled "president."

What? Jon is thoughtful, insightful and smart. Be sure you read the article and not just the headline.
