Obama: No Decision Until Face to Face Meeting With McChrystal

I truly admire and appreciate Obama's calm demeanor. He's always the grownup in the room, always thinking of what's best for the nation. Here is the full video in which Obama speaks on the entire cabinet meeting, not just the Stan portion.

Apparently, Stanley McChrystal's resignation is all written.
After Obama's cabinet meeting today, he told the press that he wanted to see McChrystal face to face before making any decision, which is a matter of Obama being Obama.
President Barack Obama says Gen. Stanley McChrystal showed "poor judgment" in a magazine story in which the Afghanistan war commander and his aides disparaged the president and other members of the administration.

Asked whether he would fire McChrystal, Obama said he planned to talk McChrystal face-to-face before making any decision. More at WaPo
