But you won't see my screens tonight. They've set up the East Room, and Big Boy said he'd feel more comfortable having lots of friends around him. So, you'll see the White House press corps and a few surprise guests sitting up close to him.
Me? I'll be flying solo tonight, as a screen in the back of the room out of most camera shots.
Some of you Friends of Teleprompter (FOTs) or do you prefer FOPs? (trademark and copyright pending for both, by the way) may take umbrage at this perceived slight. But it's just an honor to be a part of this historic night.
Not historic, you say? I beg to differ. One of the White House press corp in the front row is going commando tonight on a double-dare bet with new Commerce Secretary Gary Locke to be the first such high-profile media person to do so during a Presidential press conference. Guess away.
