Will Helen Lose Her Seat Or No?

We’re so confused…

From The Hill:

    Veteran journalist Helen Thomas is losing her front-row seat in the soon-to-be-revamped White House press briefing room — but maybe not for long.

    Several White House hopefuls said they would make sure that Thomas regains her spot if they should be fortunate enough to move their stuff into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. come early 2009.

    Katie Roberts, spokeswoman for New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D), said, “Helen Thomas is one of the most respected journalists in the business and has earned her place at the front row.”

    She also sent pictures of Thomas conducting an interview of Richardson, adding, “Helen is fabulous.”

    Alex Colvin, former Sen. Mike Gravel’s (D-Alaska) press secretary, said, “The senator considers Helen Thomas the dean of the White House, and he considers the move an infantile gesture by the Bush White House … He was outraged.”
