WEST WING REPORTAGE

This week in Time magazine, Michael Scherer has a piece about how Obama’s golf game has evolved, chatting with some of his golf buddies. “His game is severely handicapped, as is mine,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says of the President. Even better: “As in basketball, Obama is a trash-talk enthusiast who tries to get into the heads of his opponents and sucker them into taking more difficult shots,” Eugene Kang, the 25-year-old White House special-projects coordinator who played with the President at Andrews Air Force Base tells Scherer.

NEWS NOTES
