Friday’s Mini-Report

FRIDAY’S MINI-REPORT…. Today’s edition of quick hits:

* Yesterday was nice, but today was yet another ugly day on Wall Street, with the Dow closing down over 330 points.

* Speaking of ugly economic news, consumer spending completely collapsed last month.

* And then there were two: Bernie Sanders will vote against Lieberman keeeping his committee chairmanship.

* Two senior Democratic officials told Nico Pitney that Hillary Clinton really has been offered the Secretary of State job.

* If only Senate Democrats understood the Lieberman situation as well as Rachel Maddow does.

* Barack Obama will record the weekly Democratic radio address today, but this time, he’ll also offer a video version that will be posted on YouTube — a first for the medium.

* Slowly but sure, the national Democrats are taking the run-off race in Georgia seriously.

* Obama really did win that extra electoral vote in Nebraska. With Missouri’s vote still unresolved, Obama won 365 electoral votes.

* One of the year’s most important, and most fascinating, House races was in Virginia’s 5th. Adam Serwer spent some time down there in October, and has a great article on the contest between Tom Perriello and the loathsome Virgil Goode.

* It’s a little unusual, but the Obama campaign rewarded its hard-working staffers with post-election bonuses — extra paychecks worth one month’s salary.

* I haven’t the foggiest idea why Barbara Walters would find Rush Limbaugh “fascinating.”
