In Case You Missed It

Obama on the Presidency -- and the First Family -- on '60 Minutes'

In this excerpt released by CBS, President-elect Barack Obama speaks with Steve Kroft on "60 Minutes" about his thoughts and goals as America's next commander in chief and discusses the challenges awaiting him as the 44th president.

Another segment of the interview covers what CBS is calling "The Personal Transition" -- Barack and Michelle Obama talking about the first family-elect's impending move into the White House and the coming changes in their lives.

Too very good segments - one with Barack and one with Barack and Michelle.

Barack is such a thoughtful, reasoned and considerate man. I'd like to see that trademark optimism continue. It's suits him... and us.

Barack showed signs of irritation being asked questions about cabinet announcements. He need not, just say he will announce as soon as the decision is made.

Just wish that reporter would get off of

Obama's back . It is just sickening how the

media treats Obama . Maybe when the

" Fairness Doctrine " is put into law these

reporters will be a little less arrogant .
