emily in that big white house

my friend and coworker let me join him at the white house press conference last week with president obama and the president of russia, medvedev.

i got to be on c-span (above left picture) and enjoy the fascinating white house press culture. i loved seeing all the different news reporters and photographers frantically trying to get the best notes and best photos of the press conference. i also loved seeing so many people with two cell phones: 1 blackberry, 1 iphone.

but what was really neat was being the same room as the president of the united states. i think regardless of how one feels about the president, it is still a fun thing to be in the room with them.

and i just love dc and how it is so full of important events, meetings and conferences. it really is a unique place and a very important capital city---

and i'm also glad i finally got to go inside the white house since i walk by it almost everyday. it's about time...

That's my girl Emily. You have to go into detail about the interior of the white house. I don't guess you could take photos of anything but the speaker, but what a thrill to be in such an historic building1
