I have to say, Tony Snow was my favorite White House Press Secretary. As the show's tape producer, I've listened to more than a few press briefings, and his stand out in my memory. He was never afraid to admit he didn't have an answer for something, but seemed to empathize with reporters and their need for information. Today, his successor Dana Perino joins us to remember her mentor, colleague, and friend, and reflect on how he changed the job.
