Matt Stoller (pictured above in the funky hat) sends in this interesting blog post after meeting Mitt Romney, who commended George W. Bush for getting America off oil — and then lamenting that oil had hit $100/barrel today. Stoller snaps a pic of TIME‘s Joe Klein who may also report the gaffe.
And then Michael Schiffer, who is blogging this week for The Washington Note in Iowa, sends this pic of the results of the Iowa Coffee Bean Caucus.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign just sent me this 2-minute ad which will run all across Iowa tonight — this last final night before the caucuses — and what I liked most besides her commitment to better health care policy was her call for “an end to cowboy diplomacy.”
Elizabeth Edwards just sent a last minute email pleading for contributions and offering some pics from the Edwards Bus over the last 36 hours. While this note may be like many other solicitations, the hard push now and mentioning federal matching funds may just reinforce the fear that Edwards doesn’t have enough money for a full, nation wide campaign. But I’ve been wrong before.
