Sen. Arlen Specter greeted President Barack Obama when he arrived in Philadelphia this afternoon but wasn't as pleased to see the press, or at least Politico's Carol E. Lee, who wanted to get the senator's thoughts on the man who beat him in the primary. From Lee's pool report:
Co-pooler caught Sen. Arlen Specter on the tarmac after he greeted POTUS and was walking to his car.
Co-pooler: "How do you think Congressman Sestak is doing with his campaign?"
Specter, after a five-second pause: "I'm late for the squash court so I'm gonna defer that to when I can answer in one spot."
Co-pooler: "Should I interpret that as not very well?"
Specter, after another pause: "Ah, I'm late for the squash court."
And he continued on to his car, walking out of your pooler's reach.
