(CNN) - President Obama wants to deliver his major address on Iraq from the Oval Office in prime time next Tuesday, according to a senior administration official.
The official said the White House is formally requesting time from the broadcast networks for the President to deliver the remarks in prime time, elevating the speech marking the end of combat operations in Iraq in a major way.
Obama has only used the communications tool of an Oval Office address once before, when he wanted to signify the gravity of the Gulf Oil spill back in early June.
I think it's a good idea to do that. He will show Americans how important to him to get the troops back home.
Good job Mr. president for keeping your promess
I will vote for you again in 2012 general elections.
Who cares what this bozo has to say anymore.
Let me guess, he's going to try to take credit for winning a war he opposed every chance he could the entire time he was in the Senate.
What a putz.
As long as its not during Wipeout!
Needs that daily appearance on TV to satisfy his arrogant ego.
Can't he do it during the daytime hours, that way it doesn't interfere with the televised ball game.
