Guess who’s been visiting the Obama White House? Well, nobody knows. The President is fighting to keep his visitor logs secret, using the same rationale as the Bush Administration. Anne Weismann, of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, is suing to make the logs public.

There WERE some well-known visitors to the White House this week - ABC News. Hope that is covered on next week's OTM!

Listening to "The Audacity of Hope", mother and I frequently fell asleep, so we repeated what we had missed. I suggest it to Matt W, in audio book format not sped up.

Essentially, I agree with lou, though I would say "easier to offer hope for change..." Isn't there something called the Law of Inertia and, as I recall, didn't I predict that here?

I still trust him, though mother would be disappointed, if she could still follow the news, especially this segment. As I say, though, you all speak too quickly for 93-year old comprehension, she complained.

Could it be that it's much easier to promise "Hope & Change" on the campain trail....but it's quite another thing to govern?

This is disappointing to hear, but I am glad I did.

In addition to the records of visits the Obama Administration should release its media and legislative strategy on every issue for the next six months...

Nice to see this issue get addressed on a national NPR show this week. Seems like OTM stands alone. Kudos.
