In almost 17 years of hosting The Tonight Show, Jay Leno has seen a prominent parade of celebrity pass through his portals.
But he has never gushed quite the way he last night, as the biggest celebrity in the universe — president Barack Obama — graced the stage.

“Mr. President,” Leno said, “I must say, this has been one of the best nights of my life. Thank you very much, sir.”
