Did anyone else notice that President-Elect Barack Obama was approximately 23 minutes late for his first official Press Conference this morning? It was supposed to start at 11:30 AM on the West Coast, but he did not walk out before the cameras, according to my clock, until 11:53 AM. His current team of advisers stood there patiently waiting for him to appear.
I wonder what the problem was in the long delay? After all, time is supposed to be money, as the old saying goes, so one would think that the newly elected president Barack Obama would have been on time, especially since this conference focused on the current economic crisis facing America. He seemed composed enough, his usual unusually calm demeanor manifest for all the world to see, so speculation will get us nowhere.
