Gag Me With Bush's Silver Spoon
A BBC investigation
estimates that around $23bn (£11.75bn) may have been lost, stolen or just not
properly accounted for in Iraq.
For the first time, the extent to which some private contractors have profited from the conflict and rebuilding has been researched by the BBC's Panorama using US and Iraqi government sources.
A US gagging order is preventing discussion of the allegations.
Tax Dollars Hard At Work
president's motorcades are notorious in Washington for their size and disruption
as major arteries like Massachusetts Avenue are blocked off so the vice
president can roar between his home and office, a trip that a local television
station calculated cost the
Washington taxpayers $3,000 each way for his large police escort.
Euros Trash Bush
Hurtling at more than 500 miles per hour across the Atlantic, President Bush is in a hurry to demonstrate that he still matters. The clock is ticking down on a turbulent presidency whose passing will be unmourned, even celebrated, in most of Europe and — if polls are correct — much of America.

What does Obama need in a VP?
a person who can unite the party and attract Hillary voters
the above is the only thing that matters
That said, why didn't Obama choose Hillary immediately after he won the nomination? My guess is that he is the kind of guy who takes a long time to make decisions. It seems to me the longer Obama takes, many Hillary for VP supporters will feel offended, become disinterested, etc... and will either not vote for Obama or will just stay home. Obama is risking the "full throated" support of half of the Democratic party if he doesn't choose Hillary. In between Barack and a hard place.
I sent $25 so you'll keep AHNC daily. My fingers are crossed too. Hang in there.

I hope Obama doesn't drag this out.
I have no idea why he didn't choose Hillary right away but their lack of appearing together since he won the nomination isn't a good sign.
Meanwhile, the media keeps beating up the Clintons while enjoying the "great divide" in the Democratic party. Mission accomplished, eh?
Big hug, Stan. The bad economy and past supporters who "hated" my preference for Hillary hit AHNC. The good news is AHNC has achieved 70% of it's goal. I'm hanging in there.

Did He Pull A Ken Lay?
A little more than an hour
before a former hedge fund manager was to report to federal prison on Monday,
his sport utility vehicle was found abandoned on a bridge over the Hudson River
with the phrase “Suicide Is Painless” written in dust on its hood.
But the authorities said they had not yet determined whether he committed suicide. No body has been found.
