A Behind the Scenes Look at an MSNBC Appearance in Washington DC.

Always interesting when you watch something on television versus what it looks like in real life.  Frequently, it is much smaller and much less glamorous.  This is also true when it comes to television studios.  These photos are of one of NBC's studios in Washington DC.  While this is not necessarily the most impressive, there is one thing about this studio that truly is incredible.  The backdrop that you see is real.  This is actually the Capitol building and this is a large plate glass window.  Rarely, if ever, are the backdrops actually real.  But they are here.Of course, as you sit on your little stool waiting to begin, you realize how strange it is that you are looking straight into a camera lense and listening to the speaker on the other end in an ear piece.  And then you have to talk into the camera like it is a live person.  Sometimes, it occurs to you howe very strange this business truly is.

Sotomayor Conformation Hearing - Day 3.

It takes place in Room 216 of the Hart building in the shadow of the Nation's Capitol.  And boy does it get crowded in there.  With hundreds of reporters, Senators, aids, cops, friends, spectators, and one "wise Latina" sitting by herself, center stage.  Sonia Sotomayor.  And boy her mother should be proud.

In a strange course of events including a power outage, I found myself without a studio.  However, with the help of my friends around the district, I was able to broadcast the show from the White House today.  Here are a few behind the scenes photos.

Jack Appears on KOA Radio in Denver to Discuss Sotomayor.

Jack appears on KOA Radio in Denver with his buddy Steffan Tubbs to discuss the U.S Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Sonia Sotomayor.  With one day down, the proceedings will be dominated by Q & A between the Judge and the Senators.

Just as a side note, Steffan and I became friends on a trip to Iraq some years ago and actually learned that we were both born in the same small hospital in northern San Diego County.  Small world. . . .

At the Sotomayor Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings.

The seat where Sonia Sotomoyor will field questions from U.S. Senators.  What is not obvious is a stool under the table for her two rest her foot.  She recently had an accident and still is sporting a cast.Sotomayor's mother sits in the front row right behind the place her daughter is to sit.Today is the opening of the Sonia Sotomayor U.S. Supreme Court Justice confirmation process which is taking place in Room 215 of the Hart Building here in Washington DC.  And the crush of the press isn't even obvious in the photos above. 

The process is expected to take about 2 weeks with about a week of testimony from supporters and those opposed to Sotomayor.   The following week, most Senate Democrats expect to hold a vote.  And unless something unexpected happens, all in the room seem to assume that Sotomayor will be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice.  By the way, she would be the first hispanic to ever sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Jack Interviewed by National CBS Radio. 

Jack looks at the CIA scandal and former Vice President Dick Cheney's apparent involvement.  If it is true, the real question is whether the CIA effort was operational.  If so, the VP may have some problems.

Jack's interview can be heard across the CBS radio affiliates around the country.
