WH Pool Report: Greenie Type Stuff
In this White House pool report, we get naturalist specificity: "Roosevelt Room had a bit of Christmas season decoration Monday – gargantuan pine cones on the fireplace mantle and down its sides, woven with other greenie-type stuff." Gargantuan pine cones, eh? Was Cheney there?
Full report after the jump.

President Bush’s pick as Commerce Secretary -- Kellogg Co. CEO Carlos Gutierrez – was announced in the Roosevelt Room at the White House.
Potus looked spiffy in a grey suit with light-blue-tie and beamed as he announced his choice, who he called “a great American success story.”
Gutierrez, standing to Bush’s left as the president spoke, looked nervous and repeatedly looked at his wife, two daughters and son, who were seated to the front and side of the lectern and close to reporters and photogs.
POTUS took no questions after the brief event, ignoring John Robert’s (CBS) shouted query on other changes in the president’s economic team.
Text of the remarks by Bush and Gutierrez are out. Check em.
