Backpacking with The New York Times and Barack Obama: way better and bigger than the Powell and Chicago Tribune endorsements?

In case you missed it, The New York Times endorses, this morning, “Public Affairs.” or is it “Public Affairs with Barack Obama and Jeff Berkowitz.” Go here to get to the blurb and link on the New York Times front page [above the fold?] or go here to get to the video directly. Either way, we think you’re going to like the five-minute video. It goes quickly. Perhaps too quickly. The fastest five minutes on the web.
Jeff Berkowitz, Show Host/Producer of "Public Affairs," and Executive Legal Recruiter doing legal search can be reached at JBCG@aol.com. *************************************************************
"Public Affairs," is a weekly political interview show airing in Chicago on CANTV, in the Chicago metro area and in Aurora on Comcast and also often on the Illinois Channel. You can watch the shows, including archived shows going back to 2005, here.
Recently posted shows on the Public Affairs YouTube page now include a show taped Sep. 30 with Cong. Don Manzullo (R-Egan, 16th CD) about his no vote on the bailout, jobs, trade and other issues related to his election contest with Democrat Robert Abboud, a show taped Sunday, Sep. 28, 2008 with State Rep. Julie Hamos (D-Evanston) and a show taped on Sunday, Sep. 21,2008 with 16th Cong. Dist. Democatic Nominee Robert Abboud (D-Barrington Hills), two shows featuring clips and interviews, primarily from the Democratic and Republican National Party conventions, go here to watch 2nd Convention clip show and shows with Cook County Cmsr. and Obama Media Team Member Forrest Claypool and much more.

Soon to be posted shows, taped on October 12, 2008, feature separate interviews with State Senator Dan Rutherford (R-Pontiac), discussing Obama's state senate performance and current legislative issues and politics; and once and perhaps future gubernatorial candidate Ron Gidwitz (R-Chicago), reflecting on Obama, McCain and the future of the State GOP.
