Random thoughts

These are a few items in the news today

  • Alphonso Jackson, HUD Secretary, has resigned. Alphonso got in the Democrats cross hairs about 2 years ago when he publicly admitted that he awarded contracts to Bush supporters over any other Americans. He said, “Why should I reward someone who doesn’t like the president, so they can use funds to try to campaign against the president? Logic says they don’t get the contract. That’s the way I believe.” Now, it looks like he handed out projects in New Orleans and the Virgin Islands to a few friends of his.
  • Frank Rich of the New York Times writes a nice thoughtful piece on Hillary Clinton entitled Hillary’s St. Patrick’s Day massacre. He wonders why Hillary Clinton continued to use the Bosnia story after it had already been questioned by several reporters? I would go one step further and ask why would she use the story any way? Why hasn’t she mentioned that she is on the Armed Services committee in the Senate? Why doesn’t she use this experience? I’m guessing that she figures that would come back to bite her against John McCain who has been in the Senate much longer but why tell this whooper? She could have stuck with discussions in the White House. I’m at a loss.
  • Elizabeth Edwards points out that she and John McCain have something in common. Neither would be covered by John McCain’s Health care plan. I’m critical of John McCain’s plan also. There are a lot of things that a real Health care plan has to do including universal coverage, long term care, preventative care, control drug costs, control costs of hospital equipment – CT scanners, MRI’s and control the costs of medical devices – orthopedic rods, implantable mesh, etc. If a plan doesn’t address these items, it is worthless.  I won’t even get into the fact that there is a doctor shortage and without a significant pay raise medicine simply will not attract the best and the brightest.
  • Representative William Jefferson who was found with $90,000 in freezer had asked the Supreme Court to throw out evidence collected from his official congressional office. He claimed the search and seizure was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court rejected his plea. I find it hard to believe that Congressman Jefferson and his lawyers can figure out a way to stay out of jail.
  • Politico reports that Hillary Clinton’s camp is strapped for cash. I’m not sure how that could be since she has raked in a ton of money over the last 4 – 5 weeks. Her campaign said that she raised $6 million in the first 6 days of March. Remember after the Ohio victory (I’m still not sure what happened in Texas), Hillary fever swept the nation. I’m guessing that the fever went away. Because a couple of event planners in Ohio are owed $25,000 each and aren’t happy. They are spreading the word that you need to get your money upfront.
  • Senator Amy Klobuchar (Dem – Mn.) has endorsed Obama. It seems that Hillary Clinton continues to have trouble convincing younger Congressmen to support her.  It seems that Barack Obama and his camp are pressuring Super Delegates to declare if they have made up their minds.
