Why can't we do more of this? Seriously, here's to more dinners in the election cycle. But maybe the next time, we can all ditch the white ties and the formal wear. Last night in New York, both President Obama and Mitt Romney traded jokes and barbs, showing off more of their human sides.

Here is Obama.

And here is Romney.

In the meantime, Obama also took the time to stop by The Daily Show. So what do you think? Do appearances on The Daily Show and the Al Smith dinner demean the presidency and the electoral process?
