The Scene from the Hill
The crowd that wanted to get to Room 2154 in the Rayburn House Office Building was held off for almost 45 minutes this morning while a suspicious bag was checked out by Capitol police. The interest -- at least from the media's perspective -- has ratcheted up from yesterday, when the hearing with medical experts drew a scant crowd of both the press and Congress.
Members of Roger Clemens's team are milling about outside in the hall. No sign of Brian McNamee quite yet. And keep in mind a lawyer from George Mitchell's firm, Charles P. Scheeler, will also be on hand. He could serve as a buffer between McNamee and Clemens.
This should be a fascinating day. We should be getting a glimpse of the testimony of Andy Pettitte, which the AP reported would be damaging to Clemens. We could get more on the testimony of Chuck Knoblauch and perhaps Kirk Radomski, the former New York Mets clubhouse attendant.
Before we begin, though, I'd ask these questions: Do you believe a Congressional committee should be looking into this problem? And do you care about the hearings today?
