Listed below is a read-out on the phone call from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs:

“The President offered Coach Williams his congratulations and thanked him and his team for vindicating him in front of the entire country.

Maybe the banks have been vindicated. Some, led by Wells Fargo, posted first quarter profits yesterday. Has the Observer noticed that news yet?
