Introductions, apologies about Tony “no-show” Snow and First Friday re-cap. Mark Penn out in the Clinton campaign, what will it mean, the demonization of lobbyists by politicians comes home to roost, free trade with Colombia, the good that Colombia has done and liberal’s objections to productivity. Mark Penn just got fired all over the place. Will this make a difference in the campaign or is it too late? The current polls in Pennsylvania and North Carolina and the Democrats money machines. Is the Jeremiah Wright issue dead and the attacks of the 527s in the general election. Will Obama stick with his pledge of public funding in the general?

The Olympic mess, extinguishing the Torch, the problems with China, Hillary calls for boycott of the opening ceremonies and she is right. China should never have been awarded the Olympics in the first place, the oppression of Tibet and Falun Gong. How strong of a message should be sent? Would a world leader boycott of the opening ceremonies mean anything? Pissing off China. Would the athletes give a damn?
The return of General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker, will it matter? Democrats have already said they don’t want to hear any good news. Obama, Clinton and McCain all at the same hearing and the benefits of seniority to McCain. How dominant will the politics of the election be in the hearing? The issues for Obama and Hillary with this hearing and Pennsylvania, Obama can’t go too far to the left and win the Alabama section of the state. The over/under on Code Pink outbursts at the hearing: 5.
