This Week's Podcast: Ehrlich Thinks About The Past 4 Years; McDonnell The Past 150

Timing, as is often said, is everything. And so of course this week's episode of our "It's All Politics" podcast, recorded yesterday, does not include the news of the John Paul Stevens and Bart Stupak retirements.

Plus, as long as I'm making excuses, there were major scheduling conflicts at NPR yesterday and we only had a short amount of time in the studio. Hence, the shortest podcast in quite awhile.

Still, we managed to cover President Obama's week, the Bob McDonnell proclamation and subsequent update, the comebacking former governors, and the Republicans gathering in New Orleans:
