Obama Moves Press Conference Inside, TelePrompter and All
It was a mad scramble yesterday as President Barack Obama decided at the last moment to move the press conference from the Rose Garden to the White House briefing room.
Flags and podiums had to be moved back and forth. But most importantly, Obama’s TelePrompters were relocated so the president would know what to say in his opening remarks.
The hot, humid weather prompted the move. Presidential aides said it was uncomfortable for everyone, but it's also sure that they didn't want any images of Obama with sweat stains on a white shirt.
