“I can’t hear you,” he added. “I’m old.”
With that, and with all due respect, the pool was ushered out.

Dana gave a short thank you and introduced husband Peter McMahon. Reporters welcomed back Kelly O’Donnell (who just departed to cover Capitol Hill for NBC) and Steve Holland (now covering campaigns for Reuters).
There was lots of gossip about who to invite as the entertainment for the big dinner next April 26th, 2008, but late night comedians have been ruled out.
