That Sen. Barack Obama has opened a new PAC: Hopefund...That it has hired two full-time fund-raisers...That on a certain Saturday Obama presided over the inaugural of his Hopefund That Obama is letting his blog slide (after all, it was only a rehash of his press releases). Instead hes skipping to the next big thing in communications and now podcasts daily (talking about, among other things, the death of Rosa Parks and the White Sox)...That Sen. Dick Durbin hosted a viewing party for the third game of the World Series...That Durbin and Mayor Daley (the mayor being in Washington to receive the local hero award from the National Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund) were groggy when the game ended at 2 a.m. That the menu consisted of pizza and an assortment [of what? Not mentioned] from the Illinois Congressional delegation...That Jan Schakowsky, Dan Lipinski, Ray LaHood, Melissa Bean, Jerry Costello and Rahm Emanuel were all there...That Obama came in fresh from the mound at U.S. Cellular Field where he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the second game.
Note: It was smart of Obama to ditch his regular blog which ran only his old press releases. Sweet does that for him.
