    Like I said yesterday, let’s call it the ‘Let them eat cake” banquet.

  2. Michael says:

    What they need is a motherly figure reminding them that there are people in this world without any food to eat, when they don’t finish everything on their plates.

  3. Bithead says:

    Hillary Clinton; Ambassador to the UN?


  4. Michael says:

    Hillary Clinton; Ambassador to the UN?

    Is that actually being suggested?

    Though I could certainly see Obama appointing her as Ambassador to China, or India, or anywhere else that’s very very far away from him. Do we have an Ambassador to the antarctic?

  5. Bithead says:

    Trust me when I tell you, chips are gonna get called in. That viddie that Larry Johnson is drooling over is just one chip of many, I suspect. From Obama’s POV, such an appointment would be the least damaging, in the short term.

    This dinner is almost as great as the fund raiser held for the Tampa Aquarium. Featured on the menu: sushi.
