Tom Brokaw‘s challenge(made immediately after Obama’s speech) for everyone to stop the horse race coverage should get a lot of play. Chris Mathews: “So I guess we all just stay home.” And Tom had to actually tell Chris that there was other substance to actually report on. Very sad.

How will MSNBC cover the results from the Michigan primary on Jan. 15, when they are airing the Democratic debate from Las Vegas?

And several of you caught our live blog post at 9:51 and questioned what Bill Bennett was saying on CNN: “‘Remember John McCain is 71 years old. He can’t comb his hair.’ What?”

Here is the full transcript from CNN: “John McCain is 71-years-old. He’s got broken bones, he can’t comb his hair. And he said he would out-campaign everybody in New Hampshire. And he did, so let’s give him that moment. It’s quite extraordinary.”
