I’m listening to Obama’s first press conference as president-elect. Ladies and gentleman, on January 20 we’re going to have a president who can speak in complete sentences.
Obama says “uh” quite a lot—and it’s a low, gravelly, croaky smokers “uh.” I’m listening to this on the radio and I just realized, when I wished I was watching it on TV, that I was picturing Obama in the White House briefing room. Which he’s not in, since he hasn’t been sworn in yet. It’s going to be a long ten and a half weeks.
