This afternoon President Obama interrupted, without warning (perhaps),his Press Secretary’s regular White House Press Corp Briefing. Good timing, a funny line and then straight into the people’s business – the resignation of Justice Souter from the US Supreme Court.
It’s hard to imagine many politicans being able to pull this off. Certainly not those on the UK side of The Atlantic.
However, that’s one stunt he cannot repeat – although more President Obama and less Press Secretary Robert Gibbs would be a huge blessing.
