This Daily Show clip, while not being hilariously funny, seems to hit on all the major points of the "Showdown". The media loves adversarial packaging, especially when they get to use boxing metaphors... despite how purty he talks, Obama's policies sound a lot like Bush's... and Dick Cheney is some kind of simpleton who sees the only options to be 100% adherence to Bush/Cheney security policies or hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans dying in fire.
