    •  early arrival (none)
      how many seat rows are in that room?
    •  The West Wing Anniversary... (none)
      ...at the White House was November 13, 2002.  Check out this question to Scottie at the press briefing that day:

      Q Scott, on another subject. In Nevada, 67 percent of the voters supported an initiative confining marriage to one man and one woman, while in his Florida debate with Bill McBride, Governor Jeb Bush, when asked if homosexuals should be prohibited from adopting children replied -- and this is a quote -- "I believe they should. If you're going to have permanency, it should be with a loving couple that is man and wife." And my question is, the President doesn't disagree with either his brother or the majority of Nevada voters, does he, Scott?

      MR. McCLELLAN: What was the statement again?

      Q I believe -- this is what Jeb Bush, with 650,000 votes, he said when he was asked if they should be prohibited from adopting children, he said, "I believe they should. If you're going to have permanency, it should be with a loving couple that is man and wife."

      Now, the President doesn't disagree with his brother, does he?

      MR. McCLELLAN: I think the President's views are very clear on that issue, as well.

      Q So he doesn't disagree. The New York Times reports this morning that the Catholic Bishop's Conference meeting here in Washington has just debated the question of whether action in Iran is a just war. In a debate presided over by Cardinal Law of Boston, whom the Times identified as "the leader at the center of the abuse scandal," even as abuse victims are calling for his resignation. And my question, does the White House hope the bishops can achieve some real solution to their pedophile priest problem before making any proposal of pacifism towards Saddam Hussein?

      MR. McCLELLAN: You mentioned Iran. I think you meant Iraq when you said that earlier?

      Seems rather Guckert-like...and bear in mind the question before this one was rather contentious and regarding the possibility that Saddam didn't have WMD's.

      No McClellan in sight at the launch in 2002; Casts doubt on when Scotty's replaced Ari... I haven't watched Ari's video for Gannon yet though.

      •  I watched it (none)
        No live gaggle images in Ari's piece. More about the Press Room as FDR's swimming pool -- complete with trap door.

        Good catch from the wayback machine -- I'll see if I can find when the video was switched. The current page was last updated April 9, 04. The archived copy was from Jan 20, 01

      •  Ari's video there even in 2003 (none)
        Wayback machine is indexed through 2003 for this page. The McClellan PR video was clearly too recent to be interesting. The dated gaggle videos on C-Span are a much better source IMO
    •  It's Him - Compare Side by Side (none)
      This is from the WH Tour video and our friend James D. on USMCPT.
    •  URGENT: DOWNLOAD (none)
      and SAVE these videos.  if history is any indicator, they WILL be scrubbed.  anyone/everyone who knows how - PLEASE COPY NOW
