Obama Finds Himself in Middle of Whole Different Race

By SteveK 

Wait, wait…what was that about CNN landing Sen. Barack Obama‘s, “first national TV interview since the Indiana and North Carolina primaries”?

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams is currently en route to Washington, DC to interview Obama from the Newseum. The full interview airs tonight on Nightly News, but excerpts will air this afternoon on MSNBC. Wolf Blitzer‘s interview also takes place at the Newseum will take place this afternoon in The Situation Room studio, with CNN planning to air it in parts beginning at 4pmET. But will MSNBC get the Williams interview up first?

Gentlemen, start your engines…

> Update: This just in from Wolf and the team — pieces of the interview will begin airing in the 1pmET hour. Well…that was a quick race.
