Bush insiders say the prez wants to hold monthly press conferences, a far cry from the few he held in the first term. "He's enthusiastic about it," says one associate. "He likes exchanges with the press. This is a sign of things to come: glasnost on Pennsylvania Avenue."Hmmm. Why did it take him 4 years to discover that this is something he should have been doing all along?
I'm quite certain this has nothing at all to do with his historically painful poll numbers, numbers that he swears that he ignores, of course. Nope, nothing to do with that at all. He just woke up one day and was like "hey! I'm the president! Maybe I should talk to the press every once in a while, it might be fun!"
