Have Beer We'll Talk

Former President Lyndon Baines Johnson loved to take reporters on "speed and beer" drives around his Texas ranch. Talking politics while drinking Lone Star beer and flying across the countryside in a Cadillac convertible was the way he brought disparate points of view together. The cadgy old bastard liked a captive audience. When a reporter once complained about how fast the President was driving he simply covered up the speedometer with his hat. President Obama could do the same tomorrow at the Gates-Crowley Pow-Wow but without a proper "Open Road" Stetson for coverage, Crowley would probably have to arrest him.

If I were that Harvard Professor I would have shared more than ID's/ What's wrong with sharing some shots and DC powders right then and there to smooth things over?

Oh, Trace. How you tempt!

Obama should yell, "gotcha! I knew my 'stupidily' comment would make this happen. I win."

Dunno. This will probably look as uncomfortable, fake, and scripted as Bush's "Mission Accomplished" moment.

We'll see.
