Obama's press conference

"I'm a big believer in persistence."

-President Obama, responding to a question about the possibility of achieving peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

On economic issues, he pounds home the old liberal idea that the best way to ensure economic growth is to make the right investments in human capital, infrastructure, etc. But he makes it sound fresh. Maybe that's because conservatives have thot that they were the ones in charge ideologically for so long. So now being, in some respects, an old-fashioned liberal is new.

Here's the entire press conference, all 56 minutes of it. God bless MSNBC.com
