Quarter-apple, I think.Where was the stagehand with the half apple box. I have mentioned this before but one time Speaker of the House Carl Albert was, uh vertically challenged and carried a "PortaPodium" when on a speaking tour. One of his assistants would place this behind the lectern then Mr. Albert would walk out and obviously step up onto this to make his speech. I guess he figured no one in the audience would notice? Oh, this device was actually a wooden pop bottle case wrapped in fabric.
This is the WHCA: they should have a hydraulic pantograph that can remotely go up and down to fit.
