How much is "Nightly News" host Brian Williams in the tank for President Obama?
Well, as part I of NBC's special report "Inside the Obama White House" came to a close Tuesday, Williams, while saying good night to the president, actually bowed his head.
I kid you not (embedded video and partial transcript below the fold):
BRIAN WILLIAMS: Now it is first family time and time for us to say good night. Mr. President...
Pres. OBAMA: All right.
WILLIAMS: ...that's your elevator.
Pres. OBAMA: It is. Thank you.
WILLIAMS: Thank you, sir. (bows head) Have a good evening.
Pres. OBAMA: Appreciate it. Thank you very much.
WILLIAMS: We'll see you Tuesday. Thank you.
Pres. OBAMA: Thank you.
