Hardball Briefing: Jan. 26, live from Las Vegas

Updated
 

Did you know that the first thing you need to do when you get to the fabulous Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas is to touch Caesar’s finger for good luck? Do you think the presidential candidates get their luck that way?  We will ask the man himself, Oscar Goodman, the famous mayor of Las Vegas.

We begin tonight with the battle of the stars, the newly competitive battle for the bling of the most famous and important Hollywood stars in the 2008 Presidential race.
NBC News correspondent Michael Okwu had the tough job of hitting the Ivy and the Malibu Colony to find out who is hotter—Hillary, Obama, Edwards, Vilsack. PLUS, Michael Medavoy, a big-time movie producer and democratic fundraiser, will give us a sense from the Beverly Hills Street.(His wife has already come out for Obama) Will Mike declare his candidate tonight on Hardball?

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons (R) just told me that if you want Nevada you better agree with us on Yucca Mountain. He gets fetted tonight as the incoming governor. The Hardball team will be attending the preliminaries of the Miss America Pageant tonight at the fabulous Alladin Hotel and going for a late night show of NBC’s own Jay Leno.

But right now…run to your TV cause we are at Pure Nightclub at Caesar’s and(a place we normally could not get into)and while we haven’t seen Britney Spears, DJ AM is warming up the CDs and the Pussy Cat Dolls are also getting ready for another big Friday in party town.
Hardball Correspondent David Shuster is hard at work preparing for Ari Fleischer’s appearance at the Scooter Libby CIA leak trial.

Have a Hardball weekend.

Complied from the infinite pool….See ya at The Palms on Monday.
