I mentioned it to my husband afterward. My theory is that he's in new territory and isn't quite sure of the tone to take. A press conference of this
size and import is new ground for him. It's not as formal as a speech, but not as casual as a non-televised meeting and I think he was trying to
strike a tine somewhere in between.
PLUS, the campaign is over, so after 2 years of hard campaigning, he's suddenly shifted into a new gear and then there's the matter of the security
briefing... Imagine what he was told! I think he probably is getting less sleep than during the campaign. It would be nice if he could take a few
weeks off to come down, but just the opposite is true. Now the real work starts...

Here you go, he apparently got in much trouble and had to apologize for the seance joke about Regan and Nancy.
He did not "get into trouble"! He's not a second-grader! He offered an apology on his own.

Obama will be WHITE haired by his second year.
I've thought the same thing myself. He's taken on the crappiest job in the world! And he TRIED to get it! LOL It's going to wear and tear on him.

With the briefings he is being given; if he weren't somber and thoughtful, I would be far more concerned.
Exactly. I really expect him to go through some changes as he moves from the campaigner to the President. I look forward to it. I think he's up to
the job. And apparently so do 90% of the world.
