I’m a little under the weather (and Nicole Belle had to take a week off from our regular Monday morning Fools on the Hill segment), so we finished today’s show with a trip in the Wayback Machine to November 9, 2007.  It was a year away from the 2008 election.  I was hosting the morning show at then-progressive talk 940 WINZ in Miami and, that morning, hosted my first and only interview with Chris Matthews.  He was having so much fun that he stayed on for an extra segment – and we both proved to be horrible at making political predictions.

At the top of the show, I chatted with Dave Johnson, fellow at the Campaign for America’s Future, and whose blog Seeing the Forest is celebrating its 10th anniversary today, about Mitt Romney’s problems with his Bain history and his tax returns. 

And after news from the Talk Radio News Service, we checked in with Chase Madar, author of the new book,  The Passion of Bradley Manning: The Story of the Suspect Behind the Largest Security Breach in U.S. History.  Today begins at least a week of pre-trial hearings for Manning. 

I’m going to go drink some tea with honey and rest. Talk to you tomorrow… radio or not!
