Scripting News for 3/5/2008

Lakoff hits it out of the park 

I thought today would be a great day to interview UC-Berkeley professor George Lakoff on the Democratic campaign, who should have done what, and how his candidate (and mine) Barack Obama should proceed in the race with Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

Here’s the 25-minute interview in an MP3.

I think he hit it out of the park and I hope this makes its way into the Obama campaign. It’s got so much more substance than the typical talking head stuff on CNN and MSNBC.

Update: Cross-posted at Huffington.

Today’s campaign conference calls 

Listen to the Obama and Clinton campaigns spin results from yesterday’s primaries in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Sorry I don’t have an RSS feed yet for all these podcasts. It’s all rushing by so fast, it’s the most I can do to get them online and downloadable.

Morning podcast 

Another in a series of 20-minute interviews with smart people of all walks of life about the political issues of our day.

Today our guest is Scott Rosenberg, former Salon Managing Editor and book author.

This podcast was recorded at 10AM on March 5, 2008, the day after the Ohio and Texas primaries. improved 

Okay the number one complaint about the wonderfully simple Cinch service from BlogTalkRadio was that your feed has your phone number in it.


Now they’ve added a simple registration feature that allows you to give it a new name and hide your phone number.

I changed my feed to:

You can listen to my first podcast under the new regime.


Quote of the morning 

Politico: “If she wants to make issues like ethics and disclosure and law firms and real estate deals and all that stuff issues, as I’ve said before I don’t know why they’d want to go there, but I guess that’s where they’ll take the race.” Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod.

Obama has to fight back and there’s lots to discuss. Whitewater, Travelgate, Vince Foster, impeachment, disbarment.
