The info — a chain of emails discussing wording of the guidance and schedule — wasn’t that exciting. But it did show the inner workings of the press office and how each word, even in something as mundane as the daily schedule, is scrutinized and debated.
One item of debate: the seder Obama was hosting to celebrate Passover.
One staff member suggested removing mention of the dinner, then another said it had already been announced the day before and the press would question its removal.
Why would they think of removing the dinner from the official schedule? Apparently people in Washington and neighboring states had been calling the White House to ask why they weren’t invited.
The dilemma of working for a popular president. Everyone wants a piece of the pie.
