Editor in Chief
This week on Politics Daily's online weekend show, "Woman UP," Alex Wagner, Bonnie Erbé, our special guest, Walter Shapiro, and I discuss coverage of the obscure preacher who effectively held the country hostage by threatening to burn the Koran on the ninth anniversary of 9/11. Should we have covered him? Was Obama wrong to weigh in, and was Defense Secretary Robert Gates right to give him a call?

Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
