I'm watching the Lady Cats take in the Tennessee Volunteers. Apparently, Pat Summitt was almost hired as the Lady Cats Head Coach. The game is on the Fox Sports Network. The Cats knocked off Florida already this season and they are currently leading (4:04 remaining in the first half) a strong Tenessee team.
Now on to other news of the day. Judge Alito is likely to be confirmed.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay asks your thoughts on the Olympics.
I haven't had this confirmed and I can't remember who mentioned it today but they heard a rumor from sources in DC saying that John McCain and Hillary Clinton might leave their respective parties and run as independents, possibly on the same ticket.
Sorry, Dan but I've endorsed Eliot Spitzer already.
The Politicker has learned that Tom Suozzi's been talking to political consultant Dan Gerstein, a longtime advisor to Joe Lieberman with a reputation like his old boss's for crossing some of the traditional Democratic interest groups, notably the teachers' unions, and who is not a favorite of the people he likes to call the Democrats' "angry activist base."New Hampshire State Representative Peter Sullivan has unveiled his reform plan for lobbyists and Congress.
"He’s given us some advice, but we don’t have a campaign at this time," Suozzi aide Kim Devlin said when asked if Gerstein was on the campaign.
The connection makes some sense. Suozzi, along with Shelly Silver (an odd couple), was one of the early, prominent supporters of Senator's 2004 presidential bid.
"Senator Lieberman is a big fan of Tom Suozzi’s and through my exposure to Tom under Sen. Lieberman I became a big fan as well," Gerstein says. "I’m interested in helping him advance his reform agenda in New York in any way I can."
