WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama painted a bleak economic outlook as he took his case for an economic recovery package to the American public on Thursday in his first major policy speech since the election.
“We start 2009 in the midst of a crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime — a crisis that has only deepened over the last few weeks,” Obama said in the speech at George Mason University, Fairfax, Va. “Nearly two million jobs have now been lost, and on Friday we are likely to learn [in a government report] that we lost more jobs last year than at any time since World War II.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
