WCCO's Frank Vascellaro interviews President Barack Obama

Local TV news anchor Frank Vascellaro scored an interview with President Barack Obama, which aired on WCCO Thursday night. Obama addressed the fiscal cliff, the new medical device tax that is about to kick in (he's unwilling to delay or suspend it) and the NHL lockout (he thinks rich players and even richer owners ought to do right by their fans and resolve their dispute). Vascellaro also talks about what it's like to visit the White House and how, in a bout of nervousness, he almost knocked over a table.
