Dr. Nancy On Olympics Loss: 'Can't Hide It, I'm Very Disappointed'

Nancy Snyderman—huge fencing fan? Ping-pong aficionado perhaps?  I mean, what could explain the doctor being so down in the dumps over Chicago's loss of the Olympic games?

Here's how a crestfallen Snyderman opened her MSNBC show today: "A profound loss for Chicago . . . a stunning blow to the United States . . . I'm one of those people who is profoundly disappointed.  I can't hide this one."

There's video after the break that should give a hint to the real answer . . . 

So what's making Snyderman so sad?  At one point, she fretted "will this be any kind of misstep that might cause the president any kind of political fall-out?"

Altogether now: awww.
