Today the Des Moines Register lamented that they had a great phone interview with Obama (seeking their endorsement), that he was lucid and frank and enlightening (I forget the details, I am vamping, but you get the general idea), but that it was off-the-record. They wrote a blog posting about it, moping over the great stuff they couldn’t publish. Probably mentioned it in this morning’s printed paper, too.
Then, oh, okay…the White House relented and agreed to let them publish it.
Now everybody in Iowa will read it, with a critical eye, to see why it had been off-the-record.
-kb, the Kent who admires cleverness.
