Q Mr. President, Hillary is a Yankees fan. Are you still a Cubs fan? (Laughter.)

Q Did Tony Blair give you an update?
THE PRESIDENT: I got an update from Tony Blair on where things are, and we're now in touch with the various parties and I expect to make some more phone calls sometime in the next hour or so. It's an all-nighter.
Q Will the talks be extended tonight?
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I think by most standards they've already been extended. But I do expect so. I think they'll work quite late.
Q Do you think the First Lady will let you keep the jacket, since she's a big Cub fan?
