  As already referenced, the very first President to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner was Calvin Coolidge in 1924. I had just been elected to the United States Senate. [Laughter] And I reme- -- I remember telling him, "Cal, just be yourself. Get up there and speak from the heart. You're going to be great, kid. You're going to do it well." [Laughter]
