I’m off to the Claremont Resort to spend weekend with Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt, Francis Fukuyama, Christine Todd Whitman, Walter Mead, Steve Rattner, and other interesting folks.
I will be watching matters in the Bolton arena very closely — particularly for any late-day breaking news out of the Karl Rove operation. He often uses close of business Friday opportunities to release news so that the White House gets one-way spin through the weekend.
If that happens, we will be hard at work — despite being out here in the incredibly nice Bay Area — to unspin the Rovian line.
