Timing is Everything, Part Deux

So tomorrow is the first of two major congressional hearings on Benghazi, the one Petraeus was supposed to testify in before an episode of Falcon Crest broke out.  And what happens?
U.S. President Barack Obama will hold a news conference at 1:30 p.m. EST (1830 GMT) on Wednesday, the White House said on Tuesday.
Just in time to suck all the air out of the hearings. 

Prediction--no knowledge of General P, five or six questions to pre-picked journalists mainly about taxing the rich, filibuster answers.  If he picks a Fox reporter he'll squeeze in some jab at Rove in the answer. In other words, no change. 

But there's a wildcard.  Now that Obama has been safely reelected will the media put on their Sam Donaldson, Helen Thomas suits?   Will we actually see someone try to interrupt one of the filibustering replies?   Will pigs fly?
