A press conference I'd like to see ...

Journalist: "Scott, just the other day, the president was asked how he'd compare VP candidates Dick Cheney and John Edwards. His response: 'Dick Cheney could be president.'"

Scott McClellan: "And your question is?"

Journalist: "Well, there was a pretty clear implication that John Edwards just didn't have the experience, or perhaps maturity, call it what you will, to take on the position of president if circumstances called for it."

: "And?"

: "Well, given that George Bush is, by all accounts, a pampered, former secretary chasing, party animal, frat boy, service-dodging, cocaine using, former alcoholic, inarticulate, mediocre Yale C student and single-term governor, isn't it fair to say that he's already lowered the bar considerably for being president?"

Ah, well, I can dream, can't I?
