• Are President Obama and His Teleprompter Breaking Up?

    It would appear as though one of the greatest political collaborations of the modern age may be on the rocks. It's almost too painful to contemplate. Is this… Is this…

    Is this really the end of Barack Obama and his teleprompter?

    At recent campaign events in Pennsylvania, Virginia and again Monday in Ohio, Obama spoke to crowds in high school gymnasiums and at crowded outdoor events without his teleprompter, instead using written notes.

    The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium.

    Who is this binder?! Where did he meet it? Is it prettier than the teleprompter? Is it? Probably newer, I'll bet.

    Enjoy your time with the President, binder. I just hope you know it won't last long. Before you know it, he'll have moved on to an iPad or a stack of index cards.
