I’ve agreed to be on Cynthia Hardy’s radio show at 6 Sunday night. It’s on the Big DM, FM 101.3.
The topic is the State of the Union, and Nikki Haley’s response.
What am I likely to say? Probably something on the lines of what I said in this comment earlier in the week:
I’m thinking we had an important alignment of the planets last night. Both Barack Obama and Nikki Haley using their big moments — his last SOTU, her first turn on the national stage — to urge people to reject the worst, most negative elements of our politics today…
That’s special. That’s important. That’s worth celebrating.
I’m proud of them both…
Or maybe something else that occurs to me between now and then. We’ll see…
Oh, by the way, a couple of other things to mention, while I’m thinking about the coming week:
- Monday, I’m tentatively set to catch up with Buzz Jacobs, who just became a senior adviser to Marco Rubio’s campaign. We last saw Buzz direction John McCain’s successful primary campaign here in 2008. Here he is at the low point of that campaign, when a lot of people thought McCain was out of it.
- Friday, I’m having coffee with Stephanie Formas, SC communications director for Hillary Clinton. Stephanie reached out to comment on a blog post the other day, and I thought it was time to get acquainted.
It’s about time I started actually paying close attention to the upcoming primaries.
I mention this in case y’all have any thoughts about questions they should be asked. I’m NOT promising to ask them; I don’t even promise myself anything like that going into an interview. I tend to wait and see where a conversation goes and seize opportunities accordingly, in keeping with the Fremen saying, “Be prepared to appreciate what you meet.”
For that matter, these casual meetings may end up off the record, since they are both in the get-acquainted (or re-acquainted) category.
But I welcome y’all’s thoughts…
