Well, he's entering office under historic conditions. Bush's approval rating is so low that many Americans don't want to hear from him. There is an overwhelming need for the American people to hear from Obama about what his plans are for the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the economy, the bailout package, the auto workers, the foreclosure crisis, etc, etc. Americans know at this point, Bush can do nothing. He's out of time, and he's out of confidence.
I don't recall it ever happening either, but again, these are historic times so maybe that's why he had a press conference.
