Rosenbaum’s Revelation, part 2

Remember the story from Ron Rosenbaum, about the LAT sitting on a “potentially devastating sexual scandal involving a leading Presidential candidate?”

Most of the speculation at the time centered around Hillary Clinton and and her girl Friday, Huma Abedin.

Fast-forward 4 months, and take a look at this exclusive report over at Cao’s.

Now have a look at this.

Finally, check out this video.

Is it possible that this is Rosenbaum’s revelation?

Senator Gravitas has a new name

“Ted Kennedy’s Poodle”

tedspoodle.jpgWhat’s next for The Poddle’s campaign offices, wall posters of Pol Pot? Lenin? Robert Mugabe? Idi Amin?

And The Left feigns consternation that Republicans should “distance themselves” from those in the South who fly the Confederate Flag? Got hypocrisy, Dems?

Good thing George “macaca” Allen didn’t have a Che flag in one of his campaign offices.

Ted Kennedy’s Poodle: A proud Che supporter

Got Vodka?

from NYT, via Free Republic…

WASHINGTON, July 28 — Two summers ago, on a Congressional trip to Estonia, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton astonished her traveling companions by suggesting that the group do what one does in the Baltics: hold a vodka-drinking contest.

Delighted, the leader of the delegation, Senator John McCain, quickly agreed. The after-dinner drinks went so well — memories are a bit hazy on who drank how much — that Mr. McCain, an Arizona Republican, later told people how unexpectedly engaging he found Mrs. Clinton to be. “One of the guys” was the way he described Mrs. Clinton, a New York Democrat, to some Republican colleagues.

gotvodka.jpgMrs. Clinton and Mr. McCain went on to develop an amiable if professionally calculated relationship. They took more official trips together, including to Iraq. They worked together on the Senate Armed Services Committee and on the issue of global warming. They made a joint appearance last year on “Meet the Press,” interacting so congenially that the moderator, Tim Russert, joked about their forming a “fusion ticket.”

Politics being what it is, there is more friction than fusion. As the 2008 presidential campaign begins to take shape, with Mr. McCain and Mrs. Clinton at the top of the polls for their parties’ nominations, they are increasingly underscoring their differences on issues like the war in Iraq and port security. Advisers to Mr. McCain have put a stop to his inviting Mrs. Clinton on trips.

Whether their friendship is based on anything other than the respect of one political professional for another, or the opportunity to strike a tone of bipartisanship for public consumption, is unclear. But the interplay between the two senators, both well known and both with compelling personal narratives and a knack for infuriating their own parties’ bases, could determine the tone of the 2008 presidential race and make it less personally vicious than the last two campaigns.
