The Note: No Hurry for That Final Disappointment


Who can better answer these questions right now, Karl Rove or Bill Clinton?

1. Will it be easier for a Republican or for a Democrat who is not one of his party's Big 3 to break into the top tier and win the nomination?

2. Who helped Matt Drudge post this on (Guiliani: "There must be public funding for abortion.")? LINK

2b. When is the next Drudge posting on Giuliani's past (with Mario Cuomo? with Bill Clinton?) going to be posted?

3. Whose fire-in-the-belly quotient would propel them out on the road more days a week as a presidential candidate, Chuck Hagel or Fred Thompson?

4. Who is endorsing Rudy Giuliani today?

5. What is the White House plan for dealing with LibbyUSAttorneysHalliburtonGonzales?

6. Why is Mitt Romney already buying pricey Boston TV time?

Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) holds an 11:00 am ET news conference regarding his future plans at University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Rudy Giuliani holds a 9:30 am ET press conference at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC, where he is expected to receive an endorsement.

(Kudos to Hagel and the Giuliani campaign for keeping their twin secrets.)

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) attends an 11:00 am ET breakfast fundraiser in Fresno, CA. McCain will then attend a 3:00 pm ET fundraiser in San Diego, CA. His last event for the day will be a 9:00 pm ET fundraiser in Orange County, CA.

Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), who turns 60 today, holds a fundraiser at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. He recently taped an interview with Fox's Sean Hannity which is expected to air tonight on FNC during the 9:00 pm ET hour.

Tonight on "World News with Charles Gibson," an exclusive and hilarious look inside the legendary "Animal House" quarters of four of the most powerful men in Congress.

It's the stuff of legend -- Capitol Hill roommates Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, DSCC chair Chuck Schumer, D-NY, House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller, D-Calif., and the "pledge" of the frat house, Rep. Bill Delahunt, D-Mass. Tonight they give ABC's Jake Tapper unprecedented TV access to the dingy, dilapidated, Democratic dump -- complete with a peek into the fridge (and some legendary, decade-old venison), rat traps, and Sen. Schumer's closet.

The fellas argue about grocery receipts, landlord George Miller's rent, and which roommate they want to impose a dress code upon....What clothes of former roommate Rep. Marty Russo, D-Illinois, defeated 14 years ago, leave in the living room? Who killed the rat with a golf club? Whose underwear is that on a living room shelf? You won't want to miss it. LINK
