Back to Normal: Obama Plans L.A. Visit

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

Things are getting back to normal here in Los Angeles after two whirlwind weeks.

Barack Obama will be in Los Angeles on Sept. 16 for a fund-raiser at an as-yet-undisclosed location. Save the date notices went out late last week from Andy Spahn, political adviser for Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, so this looks to be the much-anticipated fete from the DreamWorks partners. Reception is $2,500 per person and dinner is $28,500 per person, meaning that the event is raising money through the Democratic National Committee. Given the shortened general election campaign, this may very well be Obama’s final visit before Nov. 4.

Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann are being removed as anchors from MSNBC’s election coverage, and replaced by David Gregory. That had long been a bone of contention (especially among those at rival Fox) that Matthews and Olbermann were analysts and therefore not objective anchors. The two will continue with their respective shows and will continue to provide commentary. There is outrage on the left, and charges that the move was politically motivated.
