President Barack Obama "meets" with speechwriter Cody
Keenan, who dressed as a pirate for an Oval Office photo taken for use
in the President's humorous speech to the White House Correspondents
Association dinner May 9, 2009. "But as I said during the
campaign, we can't just talk to our friends. As hard as it is, we also
have to talk to our enemies, and I've begun to do exactly that,"
the President said in his speech.
