Thursday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

This week seems to be whipping by. There are only three weeks left til Christmas. Yikes!

The executives of the big three auto-makers arrived in D.C yesterday — by car. Should have thought of that one the first time around. Michael Moore wrote a diary at DailyKos with his thoughts on what needs to be done for the auto industry. And, he knows the auto industry.

Still waiting on some cabinet appointments from Obama — including Labor. Still waiting to hear who the next Senator from Illinois will be. And, next month, we’ll get the new Senator from New York.

So, on we go….


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
