Thanks for the thread. No Republican on MTP today, I see, just a democrat who will bash the administration and repeat the mantra "they don't have an energy policy".

Josh Bolten should provide some interesting insight into how the WH intends to handle the press. Although he's probably too smart to actually tell the truth and will instead just talk in platitudes about "more access to the president" all while muttering under his breath "when he!! freezes over". LOL

Thanks Alas Babylon, MNJohnnie, snugs, rodguy911, AliVeritas, Seattle Conservative, Morgan in Denver & good morning to everyone.

Tony Snow at his best to Bill Sammon -> showing the MSM who the REAL players are:

"My view of the press right now is that we're living in the Wild West, and it's pretty exciting," he said. "Because the old sheriff used to be ABC, NBC, CBS. Now you've got networks, you've got cable, you've got talk radio, you've got the blogosphere.

"The blogosphere has never quite gotten its due, and sooner or later it will," he said. "But you've got pouring information in from everywhere. So you grab your surfboard and get on top of the wave rather than underneath it."

Good that he is power player of FNS this sunday.

Notice how only Fox is doing Tony? Others could interview him. Three are interviewing Condi.

I just noticed former CIA Director Woolsey is on CNN -- that will be VERY interesting. He's a pretty staunch Bush administration supporter.

George will ask George;

"George Clooney, you're one of this nations most aclaimed and respected actors. You have traveled the world, met with international leaders, and spoken out on causes you feel deeply about. What in your opinion can this administration do to end the hatred it has stirred up in the last 5+ years?"

.... that may be putting it lightly.....

Good observation, Peach. Woolsey is a registered democrat too. And Clinton avoided meeting him. His Bush support is based entirely on President's security handling.

THIS WEEK (ABC): Rice; Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.; petroleum industry lobbyist Bennett Johnston; actor George C. Looney.

Watch out. He might just do a black and white movie about you.

Yes, I think there was some joke in the Clinton WH about how Woolsey tried so hard to meet with Clinton but I can't remember what it is.
