Tuesday open thread


Filed Under Open Thread on Aug 28 

After canceling many Day One activities due to storm concerns, the RNC kicks off today in Tampa. Among the highlights on today’s schedule are Chris Christie, Ann Romney and Chris Christie. Expect Christie to bring down the house tonight with his keynote address.

Speaking of conventions, Smithsonian Magazine has an interesting piece called “The Top 10 Political Conventions That Mattered the Most.” It’s worth a read.

Also today, another storm is about to whack the Gulf and CSM says George W. Bush is the GOP’s real Hurricane Isaac. Can the GOP withstand the media’s constant Katrina reminders?

Finally, Politico has a look at who might serve in a Romney cabinet. Who’s on the list isn’t nearly as interesting as who isn’t. No Kaiser or Fountain to be found?
