More Obama replacement follies *** UPDATED X2 ***
Wednesday, Dec 3, 2008
* Plenty of rumors today - including from a national reporter acquaintance - that Secretary of State Jesse White is back on the governor’s short-list for the US Senate. But his spokesman just said - for probably the fiftieth time - that JW doesn’t want the job.
* I’ve asked that the Post-Dispatch post the audio of this interview, but for now we’ll have to settle for this quote from Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. regarding the appointment to Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat…
He’s so humble.
* This video clip posted by PI demonstrates why Chuck Todd is one of the best DC correspondents alive…
That Matthews guy is really difficult to watch, man.
* Sam Boyd at the American Prospect seems to be catching on to how goofy this appointment process has become, but he also seems to think that appointing Emil Jones to the seat would make everybody happy.
*** UPDATE 1 *** Politico’s Josh Kraushaar believes he can read the governor’s mind…
*** UPDATE 2 *** The complete audio of Congressman Jackson’s interview with the Post-Dispatch can be found at this link.
