Late night with Obama?
Pool report via TWS:
. . . Sessions noted that the prime ministers of Serbia and of the Democratic Republic of Congo were in attendance. Secretary of State John Kerry, seated next to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, was seated in the audience at a table front and center. (Kerry began yawning 7 minutes into Dr. Carson’s inspirational speech and basically didn’t stop.) …
Dr. Carson was the keynoter. Over 25 minutes or so, among other things, he decried the dominance of lawyers in politics. More doctors would be better. He noted that five doctors signed the Declaration of Independence (fact check?). “What do lawyers learn in law school? They learn to win.… What we’ve got to start thinking about is how do we solve problems.”
(This perked up Kerry, but the new chief diplomat was yawning, open mouth gaping, regularly at this point, sometimes stifling and covering with a hand, sometimes not. And the uncontrolled yawning continued during Obama’s speech, along with eye-rubbing.)
