Here’s a little get-to-know you interview with President Obama’s new press secretary by Politico’s Mike Allen.
From this, we learn about Josh:
- He wants Obama to take more questions.
- He seems human.
- He loves his wife.
- He’s going to be a father soon, though if he stays on through the end of the Obama administration, he won’t meet the child until he or she is two and a half years old.
Josh is a nice and a genuine guy, I’ve dealt with him many times. But he’s also very much a press secretary:
“I”m so looking forward to taking on this challenge and this opportunity with her,” he said of his wife and new baby.
I guess when you talk like that all day it’s hard to turn it off . . .
The little opportunity must be knocking now and will present itself this summer.
