Obama Still Using Teleprompter

Despite news stories last week noting his frequent use of teleprompters (including one by me), President Obama continues to use them this week.

He used one today making his call for earmark reform, yesterday announcing his education agenda and on Monday announcing his stem cell decision.

It's clear he likes using teleprompters and they're here to stay.

President Bush used them only occasionally.

Former spokesman Ari Fleischer tells CBS News that Mr. Bush "preferred using large index cards plus I think he was just more comfortable with the cards."
