The White House wouldn't answer a question on why President Barack Obama reversed his decision to allow corporate donations for the inaugural today at the daily press conference:

Carney added, "I haven't had that discussion with anyone here."

Obama wouldn't accept corporate donations for the inauguration last go around.
