lunchtime videos!First, Senator Clinton yesterday caused a stir by saying the House of Representatives is run "like a plantation" in a speech for MLK Day in Harlem. She added: "I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country." VIDEO: wmv and mp4. I'll have some thoughts later on what I think Senator Clinton is trying to do politically with comments like this.
ALSO, Al Gore gave an incredibly important (and incredibly long) speech yesterday on what he described as a growing "Constitutional Crisis" in America having to do with the Bush Administration's disrespect for the law and rapid and unchecked expansion of Executive Power. You can watch it at C-Span (it's on the front page), or read it here. OR, if you're short on time (and I'm assuming a lot of you are), watch the speech highlights here: wmp and quicktime.
