From aninterviewwith The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Does Barack Obama give off such an air confidence that he puts an interviewer at ease?
Hasselbeck: The president is an incredibly cool guy. We were able to go backstage with him [after the show] in our Green Room and talk about how everything seemed pretty orderly with him there and how comfortable everyone was. And there was definitely a moment – I mean, he and I looked at each other, and I remember him answering my question and I could see the intensity in his eyes. He wasn’t just answering me, he was sending through me a message to the American people that felt special.
