At 10, "Brian Williams" and CNN cobbled together a kind of news variety show not seen in lo these many weeks of Monicagate. Featured was Iraq, the budget and contradictory groundhog and nonpartisan weather reports. "Brian" dutifully put former Clinton flack Dee Dee Meyers and Gabor-esque pundit Arianna Huffington side by side, but seemed well aware that there are only so many ways to read into (and in Huffington's case, disbelieve) the President's extra-high approval numbers. The Clinton allies are already preparing us for the thud that should follow the State of Union "bounce."
Last Laughs: Letterman, holding a picture of Clinton huddling with the pope: "Here he is, asking for exceptions on commandments 1-8."
