Who has to do well in the Democratic debates this week?

Well at the top end. Former V.P. Joe Biden had better do better than he did in the first debate. He's recovered in the polls from that. But a bad second debate would be really problematic. And then the second tier - a lot of those candidates are going to be gone without a strong debate performance. That's Booker, Castro, Gillibrand a bunch of others. They're going to be gone if they don't have good debates.

What's going on at the DCCC?

Well black and Latino lawmakers are saying that there's not anywhere near enough diversity in the top ranks. They're calling for the executive director to be fired. It's a real mess at the House campaign arm for Democrats.

Is talk of impeachment over?

Far from it. In fact the number of House Democrats calling for impeachment is rising. There's now over 100, which is about half the Democratic caucus. So it's still very much alive.

The Rant: President Trump and the Fed

He's out there again bashing the Fed saying interest rate hikes have badly slowed the economy and they should cut this week. They're going to cut this week but largely because of Trump's economic policy particularly on trade which has slowed down manufacturing in the U.S. and around the globe.
