Barack Obama took time out of his Election Day this morning to thank some of his biggest supporters — the reporters who were lucky enough to keep their seats on his campaign plane.
He would be nothing without them and he knows it. They know it. We all know it.
Democrat Barack Obama made a rare foray to the press section of his campaign plane early Tuesday — election day — to thank reporters for accompanying him on his grueling 21-month ride.
Also thanking the media for expressions of condolence following the death of his grandmother, Obama acknowledged there had been “sometimes friction” between the campaign and the press.
“But you guys have been gracious and understanding,” he said, following conservative criticism of the press for its coverage of Obama, as his plane prepared to depart after a huge rally in Virginia for Chicago.
“It’s been a good long ride with all of you,” the Illinois senator said. “Whatever happens tomorrow (Tuesday) it’s going to be extraordinary and you guys have shared this process with us.”
