Without comment, campaign
officials for President Obama this morning released to the Des Moines
Register a transcript of an interview he had Tuesday with Laura
Hollingsworth, president and publisher of the Register, and Rick Green,
editor/vice-president of news. Initially, the White House
had asked that the conversation be considered off-the-record and its
details not shared with readers.
