President-elect Barack Obama spoke to reporters while helping out a Washington, D.C. teen shelter. Obama complimented the pilot who landed a U.S. Air flight in the Hudson river last week.

“I spoke to Sully, the pilot who landed that US Air flight in the Hudson, and he said that me and my crew we were just doing our jobs. And it made you think if everybody did their job whatever that job was as well as that pilot did his job we’d be in pretty good shape,” said Obama.
