    Default President elect Barack Obama holds first press conference

    CHICAGO - President-elect Barack Obama prepared to hold his first post-election news conference Friday as he lost little time in assembling an administration that is sailing into a sea of troubles.

    With stock markets once again in freefall, Obama was to convene a meeting of his high-powered panel of economic advisers before the first press conference since his triumph in Tuesday's election against Republican John McCain.

    Obama will address the press at 1:30 pm (1930 GMT) in a Chicago hotel, his campaign said in a statement.

    He spoke Thursday with the leaders of nine US allies -- Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Mexico and South Korea -- as the center of political gravity shifted away from President George W. Bush.

    It's nice to see a President taking questions from the media.

    Bah, missed most of it, I only caught the last 5 minutes or so when he was talking about the type of dog he wants to get, and then the intelligence questions he didn't want to answer.

    Yeah, they asked a question about now that he's been included in some of the intelligence Bush sees what does he think about the state of intelligence in this country, and does any of it change the plans he spoke about during his campaign.

    I think you might be able to see the replay on CNN. I didn't see the whole thing either. I'll have to re watch it at home.

    CNN is airing short clips of it right now too since they said people are just now coming home from work (who is just coming home from work right now, seriously?).

    Yeah you need someone like that for chief of staff. Wasn't Halderman Nixon's chief of staff? It was some evil dude.

    Yes, yes it is.

    I wonder what kind of information they briefed him on about national security. It must be quite sobering.

    I did like how he also injected some humor into the press conference when he talked about the puppy they would be getting.

    I saw it. The best part was when he walked into the room and all the reporters rose at once. He was taken aback,since on the campaign trail that never happened! It was a wonderful moment.
