Salazar Snags Helen Thomas Seat at White House
By Ed O'Keefe
No, Helen Thomas has not been replaced by Ken Salazar, but the Interior Secretary did take possession of her high-profile front-row seat in the White House Briefing Room this afternoon, becoming the first Obama administration Cabinet secretary to appear at a press briefing. It's the first time anyone can remember a Cabinet official sitting in the press seats during a daily White House news briefing.
Video of the incident is above.
