I’ve noticed that Bob Schieffer hasn’t been part of any prime time debate coverage, but then realized since he’s moderating the last debate, perhaps he’s removed himself as a conflict of interest.
I wonder if there’s ever been a presidential or vice-presidential debate in which a participant ever had to go to the bathroom really bad. Imagine being at the most important event in your life and in front of a national audience, and then asking if you can be excused for a moment.
The author of this article about Jeb Bush, and Jeb Bush himself, thinks that Texas could be a “blue state” in the next four years. I know demographics are changing, but I don’t think minorities are that passionate about voting in Texas and don’t see political powers changing, and if it does, it won’t happen at least for another 10-15 years.
That article also has some interesting highlights that are listed below the portrait of four of the Bush men, but this one in particular stood out: Hagan also says that behind the scenes, the Bush family has already been “making advance funeral arrangements and encouraging news outlets to prepare obituaries” for the wheelchair-bound H.W.
The interesting thing about that portrait is that one day, all may have served as President of the United States.
Jimmy Kimmel is taking a road trip and will be doing his show in New York, and he actually has David Letterman as a guest. Considering Kimmel is getting a new time slot and will be directly competing against Letterman, and how Letterman doesn’t really do many interviews (though he has changed a bit on this with age), this is quite interesting.
