ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports in Wednesday’s Note: It’s unity week for the Democrats — and watch this tense tango: Hillary Clinton two-steps toward togetherness, Barack Obama congas for comity (with a fandango of a phone call) — and Bill Clinton manages to shimmy out a statement.
While we ponder Sen. Obama’s star choices (Samuel L. Jackson or Don Cheadle? Heidi Klum or Cindy Crawford?) and taste preferences (fruitcakes or martinis? — combine them both and you have a drink worthy of “Sex and the City,” female outreach settled) . . . a few questions to frame the day:
How many more polls like this before there’s real panic in the GOP? (Answer: One.)
How many more panel discussions can turn into debates before there’s a real-shakeup inside the McCain operation? (Answer: None — and two more foreign trips next week? Is he seeing an electoral map we’re not?)
Is this one of those weeks where it’s good to be a candidate/senator or bad to be a candidate/senator? (Answer: Depends on the senator.)
How many more ads like this before Obama’s upside is formally declared to outweigh his downside in down-ballot races? (Answer: Three.)
Is Ralph Nader trying to say things politicians just don’t say? (Answer: Yes.)
How carefully will Bill Clinton have to choose his words when he puts his endorsement into action? (Answer: Very.) How many of those words will be unscripted? (Answer: None.)
