Here's President Barack Obama campaigning in Florida, shaking hands, kissing babies, and getting bear hugs from 6'3", 260 pound pizza shop owners. Just another day in the office. Scott Van Duzer, owner of Big Apple Pizza in Fort Pierce, Florida, picked the president up off the ground and then declared, "Man, am I so excited."
