WASHINGTON (Routers) With his historic speech today, most analysts agreed that the Obama administration made huge inroads in rebuilding Americas relations with the rest of the solar system, reversing anti-terrestrial hostility that had understandably built up in the wake of years of Bush administration arrogance and interplanetary war mongering.

Well, it's really still a planet, but has been reclassified as a Dwarf Planet.
Cool! He even has an inverted Social Security number on his left sleeve.
Before they pull this one.
