For the past few days, we've been sharing some of the most interesting nuggets of information from Ron Suskind's new bok, "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington and the Education of the President," about the early part of the Obama presidency.

Two of the big stories out of that book have been about the problems with advisors like Tim Geithner and Larry Summers, and with the complaints of women working in the White House.

Last night Suskind sat down with Jon Stewart, and besides Larry Summers life-long dickishness, they discussed Obama's leadership style and some of the snafus in the White House.

Here's the official interview and two extra web clips:
