We've invented a new dessert, the Panetta Kerfuffle, but that comes later in the show. First, a collective decision that Obama's big speech about the economy may not be big enough. Then the inevitable disagreements over the Israel-Gaza conflict -- no end in sight. Finally, the Panetta Kerfuffle: Take one former Clinton Chief of Staff, throw in the initials CIA, mix together with whining establishment Senators and Congressional Representatives, add a dose of media and questions about Biden's involvement, and you've got the Panetta Kerfuffle.
