President Obama will hold a new conference at 11:30 am Wednesday morning. We’ll live stream it starting then. It’s his first solo press conference in four and a half months, his last one being Feb. 15.
Obama rarely takes questions from the White House press corps – or any other press corps, for that matter. He is called on to answer for his policies far less often than Goerge W. Bush or Bill Clinton, who had press conferences more frequently than Obama has of late and who took questions in all sorts of other forums where Obama prefers the press be quiet and just listen.
