My husband was flipping through the DirecTV channels a few days back while I sat next to him on the sofa, flipping through the newspaper. Barack Obama was on TV, on Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

He's intelligent, his smile is infectious, he speaks with consideration, and he just has that intangible "it". He strikes us as someone wonderful to be stuck next to on an airplane.

The ability to attract others through personal magnetism and charm.
