Fun in the W.H. Briefing Room

Its out with the old...and in some time it will be in with the new.

President Bush along with current and past press secretaries (Joe Lockhart, Dee Dee Myers, Marlin Fitzwater, Tony Snow, Ron Nessen, Jim Brady), bid the press briefing room as they knew it farewell.

THE PRESIDENT: Is that Sam Donaldson? (Laughter.) Forget it. You're a has-been. We don't have to answer has-been's questions.

Q Mr. President, do you want to say a little about the White House press corps, please?

THE PRESIDENT: Say something about the White House press corps?

Q Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: It's a beautiful bunch of people. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: My best moment in here is when my press conference ended.
