Obama request to delay 2-17-09 date real?

Reading a couple of articles that Obama has requested congress to extend or delay the Feb 17 date. Is this at all conceivable since the date has been set for the broadcasting stations?

the article stated that Podesta on behalf of Obama send a letter to the House Energy & Commerce Committee and Senate Commerce Committee. Any feedback if this will happen?

Yep, his administration sent the note to Congress, but nothing has changed yet. It's not a good thing to push it back though, because they've already auctioned off the analog spectrum...
