I'm sure that President Barack Obama's first prime-time press conference, which focused on the stimulus bill, will be fodder for the right-wing noise machine. Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and others will pick apart words, edit the uhs and uhms together for cute little sound clips, and pounce upon any ill-chosen word.
But there is one thing I can say about the event that I haven't been able to say for eight years: I wasn't embarrassed by our President when he spoke. Sure, I got a little drowsy a couple of times, but never flinched out of shame. That's another big change.
