32. It wasn't raining when they started.

The presser was set up, the flags were there, the venue is a photo op for the ages (particularly for foreign dignitaries) and it wasn't raining that bad.

It would have taken a while to redeploy the entire WH press corps and guests to...where? The Brady press room? They'd have to march over there in the rain, they'd be wetter by the time they arrived. None of the formal rooms would have been set up for the event.

The best thing to do was what they did--press on through the drizzle. A little rain and cloud make for better pictures, anyway--no squinting/angry looks.
