BREAKING FROM OBAMA PRESSER: President-Elect Barack Obama, in response to a question from Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet, says, “Michelle will be scouting out some schools. We’ll make a decision on that in the future.”

Also a note to national reporters: Stop asking Michelle Rhee to shill for D.C. Public Schools! Rhee spokesperon Dena Iverson says she’s taken numerous phone calls from reporters asking her boss to make a case for sending young Sasha and Malia to a DCPS school. “She isn’t going to do that,” she says. “Parents should make their decision on whatever is best for their kids. It shouldn’t be a political decision.”
