“Loyal understudy Biden becomes target of speculation on presidential bid” (open thread)

Last night, I discovered a fascinating Web site named “Gossipcop.com“:

Al Roker really, really wanted to score the first “interview” with President Obama after Monday’s Inauguration.

His tactics were not exactly sophisticated.

Gossipcop.com” added the following:

Roker’s NBC News colleagues egged him on, gently mocking Roker’s attempts to land a big “exclusive” with Obama.

When Obama drew near, Roker screamed at him from behind a barricade, trying to get his attention with yells of “Mr. President! Mr. President! Mr. President! How’s it going?”

When Joe Biden walked by on the route, Roker managed to get the newly re-inaugurated Vice President to run over for a handshake.

None of it seemed to stop Roker’s co-workers from teasing him.

I loved visiting GossipCop’s site tonight. I hope you’ll do so too.
