Scott McClellan knocks off early:
Q. Is the President having difficulty finding successors for Bernie Kerik, and also the National -- the Intelligence Director?
SCOTT McCLELLAN: Do you want me to put your name in?
Q. No thanks. (Laughter.)
MR. McCLELLAN: No, we're continuing to move forward on both those positions. The President has not made any final decisions that are ready to be announced at this point, but we will keep you posted.
Q. Can I ask one more substantive question, before we get to that?
MR. McCLELLAN: No, no substantive questions today. It's Friday.
Q. Or any other day, right? (Laughter.)
