Snippets of the video reminded me of The Last Word’s own intro for our nightly Rewrite segment, with the scribbled out words and sentences. Anyone else notice that?
White House senior advisor David Plouffee, Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, the White House director of speechwriting Jon Favreau co-star in the clip. Sperling described Obama as someone who “takes ownership” of his words and the policies he’s developing.
Jon Favreau said he finished writing the first draft one week before the SOTU.
