NOTE: CNN’s Don Lemon is going to do another independent voter panel discussion today (the most likely topic wil bel panelists’ reaction to the health care reform summit). As was the case in weekend segments over the past four weeks, I’ll be on a panel with Omar Ali, the historian and independent, voting analyst and Nicole Kurokawa, an independent voting analyst in Washington.
Unlike past weeks when the discussion aired live, it’ll be taped this afternoon (most likely due to continuing Chile earthquake coverage). So I do not have a firm air time.
ALSO: TMV has lots of writers but today is a Sunday. I will be 100 percent offline until about 8 pm PST. Keep checking back on TMV for new posts. If there are few or no new posts during the day, they will resume tonight. TMV has seldom had a day since it started with no or new or very posts but if it happens it’s due to unusual circumstances. The regular flow of posts will resume no later than 8 pm PST.
