For your Open Thread this evening, here are a few videos and stories that caught my eye yesterday and today. Please do contribute your own links and comments about whatever is on your mind. The usual “no links” rule is lifted in the name of sharing and lounging.
Regarding the GOP candidates, as a Tweep noted, when it comes to Gingrich it’s about substance, not perfection. I also noted on Twitter that at this point we must begin to transition into why we support someone, not why we don’t. I realize this is a tall order for many of us, especially Palinistas, but thinking about what we can be for instead of against is important.
Vetting is also imperative and I think we have a pretty good sense of who’s who and what the candidates are about. Romney, however, must at some point realize that hiding in the corner is not in his, or our, best interest. who still thinks he can ride this out without any substantive vetting.
So let’s start with my favorite segment from last night’s hour long interview with Gingrich on Hannity (via RCP).
Lovely. Just lovely. Biden: We expect Iraq & Iran to have relationship
