Congresswoman 'hung up' on Obama

If someone called you saying he is President-elect Barack Obama, would you believe him? Ileana Ros-Lehtinen didn't, even though she is a Congresswoman from Florida.

Obama called her. She hung up on him. He called back. She hung up on him AGAIN.

Ros-Lehtinen says she thought it was a Florida radio station trying to pull a prank.

Obama had foreign affairs chairman Howard Berman the third time.

Somehow, he convinced the representative that yes, indeed, the next president of the United States is on the line.
