It's been a while since I was last in touch with Connie Lawn, doyenne of the White House Press Corps & senior Washington correspondent for USA Radio (http://usaradio.com/ ), an oversight I intend to correct.
It seems that Connie didn't exactly hit the ground running with the Commander-in-Chief when he & his family recently unveiled the new pet dog, Bo, a Portugese Water Dog (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/politics_nation/2009/04/the_first_puppy_rolled_out_to.html ).
Connie "asked if Bo would sleep in the [Obama] girls' room. 'No! he's got his own spot. He's got a nice little spot.'
"[Connie] then invited the whole first family to come spend time at her lake home. The president responded with silence."
I do hope it wasn't one of those "tumbleweed" moments, Connie.
