Video: Behind The Scenes In Riyadh

President Bush may be staying at Saudi King Abdullah's "lavish desert retreat," but the White House traveling press corps is staged at the less-glamorous Marriott Downtown Riyadh. CBS News' Bill Plante gives a behind-the-scenes look at how the press corps operates en masse while covering the president during his eight-day Middle East trip.

Highlights to watch for: "a great deal of hummus," and a tour of the roof-top stand-up location (hint: it's right behind the tennis courts).
