A Different Obama?

The New York Times today covers Obama's first press conference extensively. The following caught my attention:

"The session was limited to about 20 minutes, and Mr. Obama took nine questions. His answers were purposefully crisp — and, at times, laced with humor — and his presentation stood in contrast to previous news conferences, where he would often devote much more time to a question."

Is it possible that now that he's elected, he's going to be less engaging and more business-like? Less style and more substance? That would be nice. Of course it may just be that he's overwhelmed by the huge sticky mess that is the economy.

I'm hoping he starts a new trend - nobody wears a tie - ever. Not gonna happen.
