It was Leap Day today and I felt like I needed to totally Chill Out in celebration. Sometimes we all need a break from the madness of the 24/7 endless news and all the political hype of the day. Enjoy… John Lee Hooker and Carlos Santana: Chill Out:
Senator Hillary Clinton will appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Monday, March 3 at 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT). This will mark Hillary Clinton’s second appearance on “The Daily Show,” but her “first since announcing her candidacy for the Democratic nomination.”
Duh… Tell me something I don’t know already: Economy skids to near halt. Fear not though dear readers, the Idiot in Chief says the U.S. is “not headed into a recession.” Right…
$35 million! Todd Beeton notes on MYDD: It’s an “impressive feat for a campaign that’s, let’s see, in disarray and, oh yeah, whose donors had maxed out, etc”… Indeed it’s a “reality check” for “anybody hoping that the Clinton campaign will soon go gently into the night.” Keep It Coming!
“The press will torment Obama, too.” Anyone who thinks this won’t happen to either Obama or Clinton, who ever the nominee is, is dreaming. The Republican Noise Machine will kick in… Eric Boehlert noted on Media Matters today:
I have felt all along that the Obama campaign has been the campaign playing the race card, not the Clinton campaign. Sean Wilentz was on Tucker today talking about his piece on the subject in The New Republic. Watch it: Wilentz says in Race Man, How Barack Obama played the race card and blamed Hillary Clinton:
TIME Magazine has piece from musician/activist Bob Geldorf on his trip to Africa with George W. The first paragraph caught me: I gave the President my book. He raised an eyebrow. “Who wrote this for ya, Geldof?” he said without looking up from the cover. Very dry. “Who will you get to read it for you, Mr. President?” I replied. No response. Won’t it be nice to have a Democratic president who reads in the White House.
If you missed this interview, it is a must view. The questions are clear and concise, and Hillary matches them with her own clarity and wit.
