How do we know that President Obama is serious about casting aside petty partisan divisions and working with both Democrats and Republicans? Sen. Joe “No Labels” Manchin (D-W.V.) could feel it in the president’s shared fist-bump last night with Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.). Manchin didn’t get a fist-bump, but he was able to bask in the glow of Kirk’s presidential handshake, exploding fist-bump and man hug. Jealous yet, Chris Christie?

You know, it’s very possible that Obama actually is the coolest president ever. Is that a good thing?
Obama is "hip" because he did an exploding fist-bump that folks have done since 1999? Again, YOU ARE ALL FRIVOLOUS PEOPLE.

Manchin isn’t the first to marvel at Obama’s mighty fist-bump; CBS’s Mark Knoller has also been astounded enough to write about it. Should Rubio start practicing now?
