Inside Politics Weekend
Question of the Day
65 percent of conservative voters and 35 percent of liberal voters say lawmakers are doing a poor job.
73 percent think members of Congress are more interested in furthering their own political careers.
64 percent say Congress has “done nothing” to improve life in the U.S.
41 percent say Congress is “somewhat likely” to address serious problems facing the nation in the next six months.
30 percent say “most” lawmakers are corrupt.
Source: Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted June 15 with a margin of error of three percentage points.
Today’s talking points
Security candidates: Domestic arguments exhausted, Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama rattle their swords in fitting fashion.
Bin Laden watch: The gutsy quest to find the man behind 9/11 could prove a popularity boost for either party.
Inside the Cabinet: Names of potential appointees bandied about like major league sports trades by pundits.
Hillary watch: The fund-raiser extraordinaire and maybe maybe her spouse make nice for a former rival.
Michelle and Barack: She gets sweeter, he gets steely and valiant.
Remember, we still have almost five months before Election Day dawns which means continuing sturm und drang across the media landscape.
“Whether for reasons of expediency or laziness, the press usually ends up defining Presidential candidates by one or two go-to adjectives. Once established, these adjectives end up framing much of the ensuing debate, often at the expense of more substantive conversation: Can George W. Bush both be compassionate and a conservative? Is John Kerry really a flip-flopper? When shorthand becomes longhand, a lot gets lost in the transcription,” writes Justin Peters of the Columbia Journalism Review.
