Our panelists predict what President Obama will compromise on next.

PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now, panel, what will President Obama compromise on next? Roy Blount, Jr.?

ROY BLOUNT JR: Okay, but I'm still going to be vice president.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?

AMY DICKINSON: Okay, President Obama is concerned about religious divisiveness in this country. And so, he is triangulating between Ramadan, Christmas and Hanukkah. So our new holiday will be called Rama-Hanaka-Mas.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Maz Jobrani?

MAZ JOBRANI: In that same vein, the Republicans will argue he's Muslim. He'll say he's not. They'll settle on him being Jewish.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL, Host:

Well, if President Obama compromises of any of that, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Roy Blount, Jr., Amy Dickinson and Maz Jobrani. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
