Time: Today, 10AM - 4PM ET.
The venue: Blair House, across the street from the White House.
The champions: President Obama and the Democratic Team.
The challengers & chumps: The Party of No-sayers.
Wild Card: Some dissention among the Dems, fighting could break out between the reformers and the performers.
For six hours-- while oversees Terrorists are plotting America's demise, the POTUS will be tied up in a meeting with Repub No-sayers who are plotting his demise-- and what will come out of it? Event TV! With wall-to-wall coverage. Not the size of audience Tiger Woods confession got, but respectable numbers -- may be. But definitely, the cable talking heads will get something to talk about.
The event will begin with an opening statement from President Obama, followed by remarks, or a rant, or a sneering routine from a Repub, chosen by the No-sayers' leadership, and a Democrat, selected by the Democratic party's leadership. The Associated Press reports that President Obama will then "moderate" the discussion. Will there be moderation from the Repubs? Will there be a discussion?
