Dense & Intense - This Week On The Web

In the course of keeping up with the news and doing research, I come across some great stuff you might not see in your hometown newspaper or on the nightly news.

Dense & Intense - This Week On The Web is a compilation of longer, more detail-oriented stories and humor pieces that caught my eye during the week.

Below is my favorite picture, in a picture filled week, from the behind the scenes photos the Obama campaign released just before Barack Obama was declared the president, when he was sitting with his mother-in-law on Election Night.

This week, there is only one story - Barack Obama. I read "The Secrets of the Campaigns", a Newsweek series written by reporters inside the campaign who were sworn to secrecy. I thought it was a great way to see what was really going on all those months.

Pack a lunch - it is a seven part series - but well worth the read.

This is a seven-part in-depth look behind the scenes of the campaign, consisting of exclusive reporting from the McCain and Obama camps assembled by a special team of journalists who were granted year-long access on the condition that none of their findings appear until after Election Day.

It has been one helluva week. I am STILL tired.

Enjoy your Sunday!

did you watch the full video of the 2005 roast of rahm emanuel?

i highly recommend it. it's up on cspan although they don't have a permalink for it.

i've seen bits of it up at other sites, including ABC, but the entire thing as a piece is instructional as to a glimpse of the relationships between the people present.

paul begala was mc, speakers were chris dodd, barack obama, william safire, tom cole, william daley, hillary clinton, rahm emanuel and david axelrod.

the first 15 minutes is a presentation about the epilepsy foundation hosting the roast by susan axelrod.

yes, yes, get your popcorn and watch it, i think you'll be glad you did.

also, if you have not read it, i recommend a background article on joe biden in the new yorker.

i was cuing a tape that i'm supposed to be transcribing but i've come to the next part and have to get back to work. i have only peeked at your earlier posts but look forward to a more leisurely perusal later.
