'TamCam:' Obama and the Olympics
The Fix has FixCam.
Fix Friend Tammy Haddad has "TamCam" -- offering brief, yet intimate sketches of politicians when the television cameras are off.
Her latest offering is a behind-the-scenes interview with Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) following last night's "Compassion Forum" at Pennsylvania's Messiah College.
Haddad -- along with The Post's Sally Quinn -- peppered Obama with a series of questions, including, most intriguingly, whether or not he supported the idea of President Bush boycotting the opening ceremonies this summer at the Beijing Olympics.
Obama said he had talked directly with the Dalai Lama on Sunday and the message was: "He needs the United States to help on these issues."
"What I said was I think a boycott of the ceremonies would be appropriate unless China takes specific steps to deal with [Chinese human rights violations]," Obama added.
