Wednesday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

Yesterday, the big political news was supposed to be about Obama’s meeting with Al Gore. Alternatively, there was the news about the car industry bailout, which was also pretty significant. But, no. That wasn’t the news. There was only one story: Rod Blagojevich. The guy was out of control. I know most politicians are egomaniacs, but Blago set a new standard. The full story will come out soon enough — and we’ll know the real names in the criminal complaint instead of the designations like “Senate Candidates 2” and “Adviser A.” That’s going to be very interesting, too

Let’s see what today brings..


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
