Washington Week taped today in St. Pete



You can watch tonight at 8 on WEDU. The panel was Dan Balz of the Washington Post, Beth Reinhard of the National Journal, Amy Walter of ABC News and John Dickerson of Slate. Two of their recent stories that were mentioned:

1. Welcome to the molten core of the political universe, the hottest battleground in the biggest battleground state. Since 1960, Hillsborough County has called every single presidential election except for one—and there’s no reason to think that voters here won’t do it again. Click.

2. ... the gulf between Republicans and Democrats has never been wider. Partisan polarization now presents a potentially insurmountable barrier to governing for whoever wins the White House in November. Click.

And something Balz said: "The convention next week will be a completely scripted event. And this week has been completely unscripted."
