White House updates

By Lester Holt, NBC News anchor

All of us in the newsroom are getting vicarious enjoyment out of the dispatches being sent in from our NBC News team chronicling President Obama's day for next week's special "Inside the Obama White House: Brian Williams reports."

I particularly like the "tweets" about first dog Bo's interaction with staff and visitors. And how about the president making a burger run to Five Guys with Brian and our guys in tow. Our folks are getting some rare and fascinating access to both the light hearted and weighty sides of life in the White House. I can't wait to see it. It airs next Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

Meantime I'm holding the fort here in New York tonight, where among other things, we will address the difficult question that hovers over the Chrysler bankruptcy and the anticipated GM re-organization as well: who will buy a car from a financially fragile car company?

I hope you can tune in tonight for the Friday edition of NBC Nightly News.
