Today was Tony Snow‘s first White House briefing. You could tell immediately that his stage presence was better than Scott McClellan’s.
It was also a nice touch that he talked about his personal battle with cancer. If nothing else, it sent a message that he is a real person, capable of going "off script."
Granted, there will be tough days ahead. But it is immediately clear that Mr. Snow has more natural ability for this job than his predecessor did (what else would you expect from a TV anchor).
I wish him luck.
