Tom Udall is a TV show host

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall has launched a half hour "TV show" called the Udall Update. Sure, its a lot of PR, but it's funny how much Udall actually looks like a host, (think Dan Rather) and the background looks like an actual news studio (think PBS.)

The first episode was just posted. It features New Mexico's other three Congress people. Other shows will be available on his web site. The show will also be on local community access stations.

My guess is this is an extension of the frequent chats that Udall and U.S. Jeff Bingaman do with local (mostly radio) reporters to keep us apprised of what they are doing in Washington. Either that or Udall is running for a higher office . . . or a post on CNN.
