Happy July 4th Everybody! Quick news...
-Major talk that President Bush is preparing to appoint his Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, to the Supreme Court as Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement. Tisk tisk. I can remember during his AG confirmation hearings, Senator Schumer specifically asked if he would be AG just for a while until he could be appointed to the Supreme Court. Gonzales' response: "No, sir."
-Jerry Kilgore is at 49%, Tim Kaine is at 39%, Russell Potts is at 5%; It's time to go into panic mode. Go to http://www.kaine2005.org/ and get involved immediatly.
-News that Karl Rove may have been the anonymous source that leaked a CIA operative's name to Robert Novak, endangering her life and national security. In 2003 when the story broke, Scott McClellan said that it was nobody in the White House, and that whoever the culprit was should be fired and prosecuted. Let's see the White House squirm out of this one. (FYI: Karl Rove was fired from President George H.W. Bush's 1992 re-election campaign for leaking information to Robert Novak.)
