US President Barack Obama has set out his short term energy forecast.
In a speech in Washington today, the President predicted that he would start Thursday "full of beans" after going for his usual jog round the streets of the city from 05.00 to 06.00 hours.
He would then start his day at the White House with a glass of Red Bull and a crunchy granola bar and that would take him comfortably through to 12 noon, when he would take a 20 minute power nap in "Old Slouchy" (his favourite comfy chair) in the Oval Office to "recharge his batteries".
Next on the agenda would be a potentially draining briefing on Libya from the Secretary of Defence in the Situation Room which would probably not wind up until about 16.00 hours.
A Hype energy drink immediately after the defence briefing would be followed by a one hour yoga and meditation session that is guaranteed to get him refreshed again for the challenges that will inevitably confront him until he hits the sack at 04.00 hours.
