A busy Friday for Sarah Palin -- she attends back-to-back fundraisers in Cincinnati at 8:30 am ET and Cleveland at noon. In the Cleve, she then attends a ribbon cutting at the Michael T. George Center for Community Living at 2:15 pm ET, before heading to Pittsburgh for a third fundraiser at 5:30 pm ET.
At the White House, President Bush addresses the nation regarding the economic crisis (a presidential address -- that's what the stock market has been missing!) at 10:25 am ET from the Rose Garden.
Per ABC's Lisa Chinn, of the president's nine previous formal statements since the bailout bill was proposed, the market has gone up that day twice. (One statement came on a weekend.)
And don't miss Palin's time on the ice Saturday night in Philadelphia, when the vice-presidential nominee drops the puck at the Flyers' opener against the New York Rangers. (Real question: Will she fare better than Santa Claus in Philly?)
"We'd achieved our objective with getting the national attention." -- Kurt Gibson, a member of Gov. Sarah Palin's oil and gas team, on why outside PR help was no longer necessarily once Palin was named John McCain's running mate.
"Pee-pants over here." -- Darrell Hammond, as John McCain, with a new twist on "that one" on the Thursday night "SNL" special.
