Video report: Obama pardons 'Courage' the turkey

"You know, there are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And then there are moments like this, where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland."
--Barack Obama

The full story by William Branigin can be read here. And don't miss Jason Horowitz's story of how the turkey traveled in style to the White House, staying overnight at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington.
