La Clinton is still asking for suggestions on a campaign theme song. She sways at one point to a Celine Dion tune, so guys, do try to control the heart fluttering
The big buzz this week on Clinton has been about a leaked memo from her campaign where her deputy campaign manager Mike Henry made the suggestion that she skip the Iowa caucuses. Hillary’s response: She’ll be competing in Iowa.
While on the subject of Iowa and the 2008 election, Mitt Romney has polled well in Iowa recently. Brian at Iowa Voice has the details.
WASHINGTON – Bowing to President Bush, the Democratic-controlled House reluctantly approved fresh billions for the Iraq war on Thursday, minus the troop withdrawal timeline that drew his earlier veto.
The 280-142 vote sent the bill to the Senate for final passage, expected later Thursday night.
Democrats and the White House have engaged in fierce debate since January, kicked off by Bush’s request for $100 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and to pay for the 30,000 extra troops he is sending to the war zone.
If this isn’t holding up a bill from passage just out of spite I don’t know what is. Apparently,Filner is holding up a vote to name a New Mexico VA hospital after a Korean war hero because a Republican (Heather Wilson) is the chief sponsor.
What a world class jerk, but I’m sure some lefty out there will spin this into Filner’s showing ‘support’ for the troops.
