I guess that "reclaimed the floor" is a slang here?
and three more things that I need help with ...
Here what is poignancy of the comment?
hammered ... I remember it's being criticized severely it is the same for here?
What is "home all too soon?

Thanks Emotion: smile

"My life would probably be a lot better if I was just finishing up this book tour,” Obama deadpanned.
Clinton laughed and then, being Clinton, reclaimed the floor. “Sonny,” he declared, “I’d trade places with you any day of the week!” The poignancy of Clinton’s comment would be hammered home all too soon"

I guess that "reclaimed the floor" is a slang here? -- No, it is a political term used jocularly. It means 'took control of the conversation.'
Here what is poignancy of the comment?-- The emotional content of Clinton's 'I'd trade places with you any day of the week."
hammered ... I remember it's being criticized severely it is the same for here?-- No. 'Hammered home" = 'made extremely clear, obvious or convincing.'
What is "all too soon'? -- Very, very soon.

I still don't understand what is "Hammered home" ...
'Emphasized'. The poignancy would be made more poignant by some very near future event or comment.
