On yesterday's blog, I said that next week I was going to write a companion piece to yesterday's commentary about the Republicans and their campaign against Obama, and I mentioned that I was going to write about why the Democrats are getting on my nerves.
But last night I thought to myself, why wait?
So it's on TODAY. Check it out and tell me what you think.
Today, we tried to make sense of the Wall Street meltdown with a variety of voices -- our regular analyst Alvin Hall and NPR's Adam Davidson was with us. We also spoke to David Sirota, author of The Uprising, who did a side-by-side comparison of the Presidential candidates and his view of their respective strengths in addressing the Wall Street meltdown.

We expect to hear from Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Mike Duncan tomorrow. We visited with him briefly at the RNC in St. Paul and said, when we get back to D.C., that we wanted to have him for a TMM sit down.
If you have questions, let us know what they are and we'll try to ask them.
What I want to know is, is being RNC chairman a fun job? Just as with its DNC counterpart, it seems thankless to me. Nobody's ever happy. The White House thinks you should be an extension of their agenda. The Members of Congress think you should be helping them out. But maybe I have that wrong.
