Today show this morning as part of what is increasingly looking like a comeback tour, i.e. a bid for some kind of administration job, and although Matt Lauer opened up with a variation on “let’s get the hookersex out of the way,” discussion about the economy and the need for a new regulatory structure (hint, hint) surpassed talk about the governor’s “gremlins” by a minute and three seconds!

Not bad at all.
