WaPo's Dana Milbank has all the details and lots of quotes. Stewart actually called Obama "Dude."
The Daily Show host was giving Obama a tough time about hiring the conventional and Clintonian Larry Summers as his top economic advisor. "In fairness," the president replied defensively, "Larry Summers did a heckuva job."
"You don't want to use that phrase, dude," Stewart recommended with a laugh.
Milbank says Obama was "serious and defensive", even pointing his finger at Stewart when he said something he disagreed with. The LA Times report on the interview is here.

The ad says:
Itís 3am and your children are safe and asleep
But thereís a phone in the White House and itís ringing. Somethingís happening in the world
Your vote will decide who answers that call.
Whether itís someone who already knows the worldís leaders, knows the military - someone tested and ready to lead in a dangerous world.
Itís 3am and your children are safe and asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?
