Annise Parker missed Obama’s call

The President called the mayor-elect of Houston, but she missed the call:

President Barack Obama called Parker personally to congratulate her on her mayoral campaign victory, but Parker told FOX 26 News that she was conducting an interview when the call came in and was not able to answer it live.

Parker says she is sorry she missed President Obama’s call, but that she treasures the fact that she has his message on voicemail.

I’d think the mayor-elect of the nation’s fourth largest city can get a call back.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
