In case you didn’t tune into The Washington Times’ nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News” — heard in Washington on WTNT-AM 570 and coast-to-coast via the Talk Radio Network — here’s what three of Thursday’s guests told co-hosts Melanie Morgan and John McCaslin:

• Tony Blankley, political commentator and vice president of the public relations firm Edelman: Mr. Blankley just returned from a bipartisan summit in New Orleans hosted by political strategists James Carville and Mary Matalin, during which he suggested Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton could surprise everybody, including herself, by making another run for the presidency in 2012.

• Rep. Peter Roskam, Illinois Republican: Mr. Roskam said don’t buy House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bill of goods in her health care reform legislation, which was approved last weekend by the Democrat-controlled House and now sits in the Senate. And yes, said Mr. Roskam, under their plan Democrats are indeed threatening “jail time” for anybody who refuses to buy health insurance.

• Matthew Continetti, author of “The Persecution of Sarah Palin: How the Elite Media Tried To Bring Down a Rising Star”: Mr. Continetti said no previous vice-presidential nominee ever had received as strong a response to a convention speech as then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin last year. Don’t write her off in 2012, he concluded, predicting Mrs. Palin will seek the next Republican nomination for president.
