I just wanted to pass along the video: Daily Kos: State of the Nation This is pretty fascinating stuff. It's 86 minutes long, but very much worth watching. It starts with some prepared remarks, but there's a Q&A session at the end, as well. If you're at all interested in politics, you'll probably want to watch this. Can't really say I've seen anything like this in my (relatively short) lifetime. Really the best part of the whole thing, from Marc Ambinder: See, we really can all get along.
