That's a little bit on the ostentatious side

For all his strengths, Obama has a Chicago cockiness that annoys and amuses me as the same time. This is the latest in a series of such displays including the seal, the fireworks, the Parthenon and the Mile High Stadium. The speech in Berlin also was cast as presumptuous.

Luckily he's also self aware. At the Al Smith dinner he provides this insight: "If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome." Watch the whole thing.
