The Hill reports that the president will be relying on his binky teleprompter less than he has in the past:
The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium.
Team Obama thinks the switch, or partial switch — the president is not giving up the teleprompter entirely — will help him better connect with voters.
Anyone doubt that this move has something to do with Obama’s Warren-on-Steroids moment last week? I can’t imagine that would have made it past the teleprompter programmers.
