Watchers and the watched.


You won't do much better on twitter than following Matt Welch's tweets on the press conference.

The team at WashPo may be the best of the live blogging.

CNN's Ed Henry opened the door for President Obama to get off his best zinger of the night so far.

Henry asked Obama why New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo seems to be getting more results than the White House on the AIG bonus controversy -- by issuing subpoenas and strong-arming company executives to give back their bonuses or risk being publicly identified.

Obama's answer evidently did not satisfy Henry, who followed up by asking why it took the White House two days to comment on the AIG bonuses, while Cuomo charged out of the gate.

"Because I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak," Obama shot back.

Jason Toney calls Ann Compton's race question "hackneyed." D'accord.

Also, here's a blog-update version from USA Today, which is better than watching the whole thing.

Jindal gets the response again; evidence of the vacuum. You may remember this fabled pre-vulcan moment three weeks ago...
