Subject: Pool Report #1

The president reported to the Oval Office at 10:54 a.m., walking along the Colonnade and giving an upbeat report on his preparations for tonight's speech. He emerged from the Palm Room with a wave to the pool gathered in the Rose Garden on a steamy, cloudy day.

"Morning, everybody."

Asked how he felt about tonight, he smilingly responded, "What's happening today?" He seemed disappointed when nobody laughed (mainly because few initially had understood what he said). "Oh, that's a joke," he said. Of the speech prep, he added, "Feel great."  When he reached the Oval Office, he said, "Alright, guys," and entered.
