Tomorrow morning, the president will be doing a televised Q&A with the Senate Democratic caucus.
Staffers from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office and White House aides tell the Huffington Post that the president will meet with the caucus at the Newseum, where the senators will be assembled for an issues conference to discuss policy, strategy and message for the coming year. The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m.
And get ready for Obama vs. Inhofe:
“I believe we have been invited to speak to the Senate Republicans, and we will do so,” Gibbs told reporters on Monday.
I think this is going to become part of the political landscape the same way “town halls” emerged as a concept in 1992-ish. The downside is that they could eventually become bogged down with rules and time limits and buzzers.
