The season of good cheer gave President Obama a chance to kid actor Hugh Jackman, who plays the mutant hero Wolverine and also hosted the annual "Christmas in Washington" concert on Sunday night. "I want to thank our host, Hugh Jackman, for keeping our safety in mind and leaving Wolverine's claws at home," Obama said. "It can't be easy to wrap presents with those things -- good for carving the 'roast beast,' though." Citing the season, Obama also joked, "I should remind my girls that I like getting Christmas presents as much as anybody."
