This Morning's "Sam"*

In Springfield, Mo., over the roar of the engine of O Force One. (Exclamation points convey shouting so as to be heard.)

ABC News: Senator Obama, what would you tell your Treasury Secretary do differently with the $700 billion?!

Obama: (laughs)

ABC News: It's a substantive question!

Obama: It is! But Jake, we're on a tarmac! That's a pretty good question!

ABC News: Have a press conference then!

Obama: I will! On Wednesday!

Obama walks up the stairs to his plane.


* "Sams" are questions shouted on airplane tarmacs at politicians who try to avoid press conferences. They are named in tribute to the legendary Sam Donaldson.
