Sweet Talker

At an unscheduled stop at the Kozy Corners diner, Obama complimented a young boy with spiked blue-tipped hair; flirted with an emergency-room nurse, whom he said looks great and too young to be a grandmother; and autographed a fourth-grader's sketch book with an inscription to "Dream big dreams." Before tucking into a cheeseburger, fries and a tall iced tea, he told the diners, "All right, I'm going to eat my burger and everybody just pretend like I'm not here."
