I didn't actually watch any of the press conference last night, because my daughter's been sick and I haven't been able to sleep well for a few days with her coughing, hacking, sniffling, and moaning in the other room. When it was time to put her to bed at 8:00, I found that I'd already been dozing off for a good 20 minutes, myself, so I turned in without turning the TV on.
Uh, that's not the point of this post. The point is that President Obama called on Helen Thomas, whom President Bush had been treating like dirt since 2003, to ask the first question of his first prime-time news conference. Whee!
