Quick Hits

  • Did anybody catch the live interview of Katherine Harris on 'Hardball" this evening? She was consistently wacky - as always - answering questions from Norah O'Donnell like it was one long TV ad. She seemed very distant and scripted (well, she is a politician...), even calling Bill Nelson "our President-Senator". Don't know what that was all about.

  • The highly anticipated transcript from former Dem VA Governor Mark Warner's bizarre interview this afternoon with the virtual world site "Second Life" has been posted. The setting was incredibly odd (The virtual Gov. Warner flew onto the "stage" where the "interview" was conducted.), but the interview with the Dem contender in '08 was rather dull.

  • CA Sen. Barbara Boxer announced today that she will present an amendment to a defense bill in the Senate that calls for the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. "I think it's time that the Senate hold this administration accountable for the people in their administration." Is a Democratic backbone emerging in Congress?!?

  • Charlie Crist and Katherine Harris have solidified their leads heading into Tuesday's Republican primaries in Florida. The results from the new Survey USA poll:
  • FL Governor:
    57% - Crist
    34% - Gallagher
    1% - Other
    8% - Undecided
  • FL Senate
    12% - Collins
    45% - Harris
    22% - McBride
    5% - Monroe
    1% - Other
    15% - Undecided
