THE PRESIDENT: Well, I'm just sitting here meeting with the Chairman, and I'm going to also, you know, keep working through this with the conferees. And we're going to see what we can do. But we're just beginning our conversations, so I can't answer those questions.
Q Sir, what qualifications will the new FBI director have?
THE PRESIDENT: Good ones.
THE PRESS: Thank you.
