Stephanopoulos: “What kind of a dog are we getting and when are we getting it?”
President-elect Barack Obama: “The — they seem to have narrowed it down to a Labradoodle or a Portuguese water hound.”
Stephanopoulos: “A medium-sized.”
Obama: “Medium-sized dog, and so, we’re now going to start looking at shelters to see when one of those dogs might come up.”
Stephanopoulos: “So, you’re closing in on it?”
Obama: “We’re closing in on it. This has been tougher than finding a Commerce secretary.”
I thought they had it narrowed down to this choice several months ago though. I suspect they’re busy with other things and are letting this one slide a bit…. Also spring is a better time for a new dog.
