    Albright asks Geithner he did bring his listening device ? Geithner replies: "I'm not a republican"

  14. Keaton, Birmingham AL

    Hey, babe, I can't believe Geitner made the "Obama babe list." I mean, it's clear that he gets his hair permed.

  18. Rod Chorneyko, British Columbia

  19. Emily, Perry Hall, MD

    No, really, are you sure you don't need me to come home?

    Colin Powell fakes a call to get out of an incredibly boring conversation.

    Thank God you called I almost had to talk to Geithner!

  22. Eleanor Coombs, Ga.

    Colin Powell is feeling a little small at the moment, as he talked with one a reporter about how former Vice President Dick Chaney's statement was misconstrued.

    May 11, 2009 at 6:26 pm |
  23. Mike, Syracuse, NY

    Hey, get me out of here. Albright is telling that story again about how she negotiated the peace deal in the Middle East between Moses and the Pharaoh.

  24. Greg - San Diego, CA

    Sell everything!!! I just overheard Timothy Geithner's plans for the economy!

    May 11, 2009 at 6:25 pm |
  25. Kevin Haggith Toronto Canada

    Not totally buying into Geithner and Albright's plans, Powell places a call to Joan Rivers who is at the top of her game and definately knows how to get a 'lift' on things that are sagging!

    May 11, 2009 at 6:25 pm |
  26. Lori - PA

    Yes you can quote me. "I am still a Republican."

    That's the president on the phone warning Colin that he'll be next after Wanda finishes up with Rush.

    May 11, 2009 at 6:24 pm |
  29. Mike, Syracuse, NY

    Colin Powell receives the much talked about 3 AM call:

    "Your automobile warranty is about to expire..."

    May 11, 2009 at 6:23 pm |
  31. David-Frisco, Texas

    Hey Rush! You were right. I've been talking to Albright and Geithner and I've decided that I really should become a Democrat.

    May 11, 2009 at 6:22 pm |
  32. Modi Baron

  34. Craig in NorCal

    Madeleine, please tell Colin that he doesn't have to call in his Air Force buddies for an air strike on JPMorgan, Citi, or any other bank.

    May 11, 2009 at 6:20 pm |
  35. Joseph Murphy of San Francisco

    Hey, Colin–when you're done, we want to crank call John McCain. Madeline does a really mean Sarah Palin imitation!

  40. Eleanor Coombs, Ga.

    Former Secretary of the State Colin Powell is dwarfed by former Secretary of the State Madeline Albright. as he talks on the phone with former Vice President Dick Cheney about his comment to the public about his allegiance to the former Republican Party.

  42. Kevin Haggith Toronto Canada

    Although he is late by almost two weeks, Colin Powell puts out a frantic call to see if anything can still be done in celebration of 'Secretary's Week' while everyone is in the same room!

    May 11, 2009 at 6:16 pm |
  43. David Canada

    I know, I thought he was much taller too. But I heard he's lost a lot of stature since the Iraq invasion.
