There will be no runoff election in Afghanistan this weekend (I know, we were all looking forward to the revote between Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah). Karzai's in, but what, if anything, will this mean for the U.S. interests? Reportedly President Obama will meet at least two more times with his advisers on the strategy going forward.
As those discussions continue, the young State Department official whose resignation was made public is getting lots of face time. Matthew Hoh appeared this morning on The Today Show, and yesterday on CNN
St. Pete Times/Miami Herald/Bay News 9 released a series of polls over the weekend, and it's policy more than policy-makers that is most provocative in those results.
And on Sunday talk, Fox News gave Rush Limbaugh a platform for the first half of their one-hour program yesterday. Too bad nothing interesting came out of it, other than the odious comment that President Obama's appearance at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware last week was nothing more than a publicity stunt, according to Rush.
Most interesting was Joe Lieberman on CBS, saying he'd rather have nothing happen with health care reform than to allow for a government-run public option.
