Hurry up and wait? (that has been the day for the White House in house travel pool – click to see)

Subject: In-town White House travel pool


We have a lid, after a long day of waiting to see if the president or a White House official would emerge to make a statement about the so-called “fiscal cliff.” A statement was clearly unlikely as Congress recessed for the night without an agreement to deal with impending tax increases and automatic spending cuts.


It’s been a pleasure serving as one of your poolers during the past year. Happy New Year to all!
