But Is The President Going To Testify For An Hour?

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall: March 07, 2004 - March 13, 2004 Archives

Granted, this is from a political site; but it's funny to see the Press Secretary and the press dance around one another.

Q: Okay, so he will only testify for one hour -- that's a "yes"?

McCLELLAN: Well, that's what has previously been discussed with the commission. But I'm saying the President, of course, is going to answer all the questions they want to raise. I think that you all should make that distinction.

Q: It's scheduled for an hour; it might go longer.

Q: It might go longer?

McCLELLAN: Again, from this podium I'm telling you that the President, of course, will answer all the questions that they want to raise.

When you're arguing over whether an hour is right at the hour, or about an hour, it's pretty much a hopeless discussion.
