Political Panorama: Wednesday

Snow on Spot: White House press secretary Tony Snow turned the tables on journalists in D.C. on Tuesday night, asking frequent nemesis, NBC’s David Gregory, “Have you ever gone home, looked at yourself in the mirror and said, ‘If I could do it over again, I’d have been nicer to that poor press secretary.” Gregory’s response threw Snow’s words right back at him: “When I [have] something to announce, I’ll announce it.” The event was a special gathering sponsored by the National Press Club and the White House Correspondents’ Assn. Meanwhile, the Politico reports that Helen Thomas, reporting from the White House for 46 years, will be moved from her front-row seat in the press briefing room to make way for a cable news channel.

McCain is expected to address California’s recently passed emissions standards, so a big thing to watch is whether he proposes taking that to the national level. Meanwhile, there were a few eyebrows raised among McCain’s industry supporters when he said on the campaign trail Sunday that he would support overturning Roe vs. Wade. McCain has been wooing some Hollywood donors with moderate views on social issues while still taking pro-War positions.
