We're on the road again — this time down the street. The new Newseum — is described thus in their press release. "The Newseum" a 250,000-square-foot museum of news — offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits." So those of you that thought it would be a Nerdeum, are dead wrong — this thing is hip. Plus, five centuries of news, is pretty awesome ("We have some breaking news — Caesar has just crossed the Rubicon..."). Today, though, we're concentrating on the part of the news that's mightily up to date — we're talking to a distinguished panel about theiragendas — Ana Marie Cox, Jerry Seib, Bill Kristol, and Clarence Page join us. Let us know how you think they're doing when it comes to the story of the day — the 2008 election. So join them — it's the state of political coverage.
