ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: After a weekend that saw President Obama play action hero — resolving a stand-off with pirates, delivering a puppy to his daughters, and making time for Easter services — we chatted with ABC’s Ann Compton and political comedian Baratunde Thurston about the optics of the presidency today on ABCNews.com’s “Top Line.”  Compton — who regularly attends St. John’s Episcopal in Washington and was there Sunday when the president and his family made their surprise appearance — talked with us about how the White House spread the word about the president’s delicate role in the hostage situation.

And Baratunde Thurston, a comedian and blogger for Jack & Jill Politics, shared his thoughts on the the emerging debate over gay marriage — and what makes (or doesn’t make) Obama funny.  Plus, there’s plenty of discussion about that all-consuming story of the First Puppy, Bo, who makes his public debut Tuesday.
