Scripting News for 3/6/2008

Links for 03/06/2008 

Larry David: “Does anyone want this nut answering the phone?” 

New Republic says Michigan will announce its caucus in the next few days. 

Clinton running for VP? 

Hillary Clinton: “Look, I have said that Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech that he gave in 2002. I think that is a significant difference.”

It’s been pointed out elsewhere that you say stuff like that if you want the VP nomination, the Republican VP nomination.

In other words she’s as much a Democrat as Joe Lieberman is.

Podcast response to Barack Obama 

I got an email from the Obama campaign manager, then Barack Obama added something. They’re having a conversation in my inbox and I can’t participate. Ooops.

It’s good that we have a chance, once again, before it’s too late, to redefine a positive hope-filled candidacy. I admit that some part of me would be satisfied to hit back at the Clintons, hard. I’ve wanted to do that ever since they were in the White House. But they aren’t the issue. We are.

Let’s create something great.

I think Obama has lost sight of that, and that’s why we’re struggling, and scared that we might lose. The first step is to reset all our attitudes. We have to create more meaning out of the Yes We Can idea. We have to apply it to Wyoming, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and beyond, way beyond.

So here’s the podcast, it’s about 10 minutes long.

Let’s get creative.

How to subscribe to Scripting News podcasts 

In the last few days I’ve done a number of interviews, published MP3s of conference calls from the Obama and Clinton campaigns. People have asked for an RSS feed, a legitimate request, of course.

So I made it so that the feed for Scripting News, a feed that’s been published continuously since December 1997, has enclosures and can be understood by any RSS 2.0-compatible podcatcher.

If you subscribe, you should get all the MP3s published here.
