The unforgiving minute

What if they gave a final press conference and nobody came?

The White House had high expectations for yesterday's final, historic news conference. "ONE CORRESPONDENT PER ORGANIZATION," proclaimed the bulletin sent to reporters. "STANDING ROOM ONLY FOR NON-SEAT HOLDERS." But when the appointed hour of 9:15 a.m. arrived, the last two rows in the seven-row briefing room were empty, and a press aide told White House interns to fill those seats.

Bush has long insisted history will be his judge. I'm guessing history won't even be interested in hearing the case.

Minute's up.
