Obama-McChrystal Surprise Meeting on Air Force One

If you can't get to the General, bring the General to you.

The President's surprise meeting with his Commander in Afghanistan aboard AF1 was one a series of moves designed to take the sting out of any criticism he gets for flying to Copenhagen to push Chicago's Olympic bid.

He also called 7 members of the Senate Finance committee yesterday to show his engagement and they rewarded him by wrapping up amendments about the time the President landed in Denmark.

Even the Iranians helped with their surprise announcement to ship nuke fiel to Russia for enrichment.

So will those IOC delegates play along too?

Here's my conversation with Diane on GMA.
