Obama’s Sunday Morning TV Tour


President Obama took to the airwaves this morning, appearing in interviews on five networks to talk about healthcare. Highlights included a charming promise to “wait in line like everybody else” for the H1N1 vaccine. The Times has a handy summation, but maybe the most compelling moment was this one on Face the Nation, in which Obama addresses, as carefully as he can, the degree to which race is involved in the protests against his administration. “Don’t assume the worst motives in people” is probably code for “Please don’t call everyone you disagree with Hitler.”
