Talk/Talk: Katrina (Not the Hurricane) Blows the Establishment Cool

Sunday, April 6, 2008
Below are excerpts from this week's Talk Talk,
Katrina (Not the Hurricane) Blows the Establishment Cool. Every Sunday CUIP's president Jacqueline Salit and strategist and philosopher Fred Newman watch the political talk shows and discuss them. Here are excerpts from their dialogue on Sunday, April 6, 2008 after watching "The Chris Matthews Show" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Newman: That's an alternative position to the U.S. playing the role of global mediator in a military fashion. And that debate will likely be what the general election comes down to. But, we're not having a general election right now.

Salit: Right.

Newman: So, it's too early for that to emerge. But on the other hand, it's too late for any more primary issues to emerge, even with nine states and Puerto Rico still to happen.

Salit: Yes.

Newman: So, we're kind of in "no man's" or "no woman's" land.

Salit: Well put.
