Barack Obama somewhat awkwardly solicits the endorsement of the Des Moines Register:
Q: Thank you so much, Mr. President, for your time.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, guys. I appreciate you taking the time. I want your endorsement.
Q: Thank you so much.
THE PRESIDENT: You’ll feel better when you give it. (Laughter.) All right? Bye-bye.
Q: Appreciate it.
Q: Best of luck, Mr. President.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Bye-bye.
