Final Note

Obama isn’t fazed by buzzer, gives long speech anyway

This final note on the way out today in which Barack Obama realizes he’s maybe not the most powerful man in the world.

There are so many world leaders at the climate talks in Paris that each of them got just three — count ’em — three minutes to give their speeches.

Chinese President Xi Jinping stuck to his time limit. So did Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin stuck to his three minutes.

Obama though…well, just watch.

 

OK, so maybe he is the most powerful man in the world after all.
