The Note: Same Story, Slightly Different Words

Be sure to read the Tom Raum's AP story on Republican candidates eager to have the President and Vice President help fill their campaign coffers, but cautious about being seen with them. LINK

As for the men --- and woman -- who might want Mr. Bush's job:

Sen. Clinton will join Queens Borough President Helen Marshall in hosting her 6th annual African American Heritage Celebration in Corona, NY at 3:00 pm ET.

Sen. George Allen (R-VA) is scheduled to speak at a Ralph Norman fundraising luncheon in South Carolina at noon ET and then tour a hospital system in Florence, SC with Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC). Later this evening, Sen. Allen plans to travel to New Hampshire where he will give a morning breakfast speech tomorrow at the Mountainview Grand Resort followed by a 1:30 pm ET appearance at the New Hampshire Republican Party gathering. Allen wraps up his weekend in Tennessee on Sunday at the Bristol Food City 500 NASCAR race -- serving as grand marshal.

Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) has a packed Granite State schedule on Sunday. He plans to kick off his day in Portsmouth with Young Democrats and Mayor Steve Marchand. Later in the day he is scheduled to attend a campaign event for State Rep. Betsi Devries. Sen. Bayh's Sunday culminates with a featured appearance at the Franklin/Hill Spaghetti Dinner honoring Jim Ryan and Peter Burling.

You gotta love spaghetti over rubber chicken!!

On C-SPAN's "Road to the White House" on Sunday you can catch Gov. Richardson's (D-NM) and Sen. Hagel's (R-NE) recent forays into New Hampshire.

And remember to keep an eye on that New Hampshire Republican gathering and how the new chairman will be perceived vis a vis the 2008 Republican field.

It's time for a break. When we come back, we'll tell you about what else is going on politics today. Stay tuned.


This Sunday night -- have the ladies of Wisteria Lane got a surprise for you!!! On "Desperate Housewives," Susan invites Dr. Ron to meet Karl after he finds out about their arranged marriage; Eva and Carlos try to find a baby to adopt; and in order to combat Andrew's extortion attempt, Bree joins AA. LINK

That's "Desperate Housewives" Sunday night at 9 Eastern, 10 Central, 9 Pacific, and whenever in the Mountain zone.

Then after that: an encore presentation of a very special "Grey's Anatomy" -- the hottest show on television. LINK


And finally, what else is going on out there, you wonder?

Gov. Sanford (R-SC) files for reelection at 3:30 pm ET in Lexington, SC.

John Podesta's Center for American Progress holds a day-long panel on tax reform featuring the likes of Gene Sperling, Peter Orszag, and others.

That's it for today's Note news summary. We will be back next week with a full look at all the political news, including live reports from the annual Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner. Until then, for everyone here at The Note, have a great weekend.

Politics of immigration:

While invoking Sen. Clinton's reference to criminalizing Jesus, Rep. Tom Tancredo's (R-CO) bombast, Sen. Frist's threat to bypass Sen. Specter's Judiciary panel, and Sen. McCain's embrace of the President, the Washington Post's Jonathan Weisman and Jim VandeHei turn in their take on how the immigration debate is shaped by the 2008 election. LINK
