CNN’s Political Ticker has a Dana Bash entry noting the bumper car like atmosphere for some high powered interviewees in the Post SOTU evening…
While Sen. Barack Obama donned a microphone at the CNN camera position on one side of a column, on the other side was Sen. Hillary Clinton getting ready for an interview with NBC News.
Just then, an elevator around the corner opened and Republican Sen. John McCain came darting out. He was just able to sneak past Obama and the CNN camera before the Illinois senator’s interview began.
Clinton wasn’t so lucky.
After her NBC interview ended, the “in it to win it” candidate was slated next for ABC, but there was a problem — the ABC camera was on the other side of CNN’s, where Obama was on live TV.
Obama was blocking Hillary Clinton from where she wanted to go.
“Is there a metaphor in here somewhere?” Clinton was asked.
“No, there’s just a very crowded rotunda,” she replied with a smile.
