This morning, Wallace launched the "Obama Watch."

Showing perfect News Corp. synergy, Obama was displayed in split screen a la "24," with the ticking time clock at 730 days, 13 hours, 53 minutes and 9 seconds. And counting.

That number dates to May 2006, when Wallace said Obama first agreed to a face-to-face interview on "Fox News Sunday."
