    In today's press briefing, McClellan said in response to a question on why Bush called on Guckert:

    MR. McCLELLAN: He didn't. The President didn't have a list. The President didn't -- he was in the briefing room. There are assigned seats in the briefing room. We didn't do any assigning of seats, and the President worked his way through the rows, and called on people as he came to them. He doesn't know who he is.

    I looked at the transcripts from the Bush press conference and (omitting the joking exchanges), I believe that Guckert was the eighteenth person called on.  Judging from a picture I was looking at, he wasn't in the eighteenth seat.
