While it's easy to get swept away in a Sundance snowdrift and forget the outside world, we're told some sort of changing-of the-guard is occurring at the capital—a reclamation, of sorts, of our nation's sexiness.

And who better to herald the rebranding and hopeification of the U.S.A. than Justin Timberlake, who's made a career of strutting around with an almost radioactive confidence. Admitting to Oprah that Barack Obama's victory gave him a "little swagger to my step" (little?), Timberlake encourages all of us to follow his lead, and strut around with the model-fucking confidence of a pop superstar. Just what America needs—a higher self-esteem. [Oprah]
