Last Friday, Ana Marie Cox and I got together in the kitchen to drink white wine and answer questions from the HuffPo readership. Because people enjoy cameo appearances from Ana Marie's menagerie of delightful animals, we included one. Questions that came without attribution were officially ascribed to "Harold Ickes." And, as a work in progress alert, we were joined by the inimitable Wonkette videographer Liz Glover, who brings better equipment and actual editing experience. She's just getting her feet wet as far as filming us goes, but already provided us with some essential advice that sure to help those of you who are watching these from your offices: "Ten minutes long? Are you crazy?" I'm paraphrasing. She put it in a much nicer way!
Anyway, in this vlog, Ana and I discuss whether the Obama-Clinton rift could affect the convention in Denver, if McCain's continued "Celebrity" ads mine a racial vein, and the Georgian conflict.
Ana and Liz and I will be getting together later this week for our last vlog before Denver. Please send questions via email! Next time, we'll even turn on some lights.
