It’s a nasty, snarly morning over at Bloomberg. Edwin Chen,of Bloomberg News, calls out Roll Call’s White House correspondent Keith Koffler for not showing up.
Pool Report #1
Feb. 4, 2010
Roll Call’s no-show this morning (but who noticed?) forced this rusty, one-time pool-report writer back into action. Herewith, a first-draft of history on the president’s 2d appearance as POTUS at the National Prayer Breakfast.
The motorcade rolled at 7:48 a.m., as the morning sun rose over the Commerce Building. Within minutes, we arrived at the Washington Hilton and entered the gigantic ballroom, a venue most of you know well.
Program available upon request. Headtable guests include VP Biden, Secretary of State Clinton, Sens. Orrin Hatch, Ron Wyden, Johnny Isakson and Amy Klobuchar; Rep. Charlie Wilson and Todd Akin. Of course also Tim Tebow.
In audience at a front-row table (but way off to the side): Gov. Mark Sanford of S.C.
more TK — Keith K. — where art thou? (or a sub ?????)
Senior White House correspondent
> Update: Koffler no longer works at Roll Call. Check out our next post for more details.
