Hotline's Latest Edition

Wrap It Up

December 19, 2008

Once upon a time, DC shut down for Dec., as pols and flaks alike tried to be "normal" people. So much for that. The pace has actually picked up since 12/1, and there's no sign it'll slow down by Christmas:

-- Obama's Cabinet: Add two more to the "team of rivals." Solis is lauded by labor while Kirk's a NAFTA/free-trade advocate. When does "rivalry" become just another word for "triangulation"?

-- Auto bailout: Everyone had to give a little. But can the Big 3 live up to the expectations by 3/09? One thing seems certain: shuttering plants has a bigger impact on DC than a cross-country drive in hybrids.

 

-- Coleman and Franken: MN supremes say absentees can count, as long as the two sides agree to standards by 12/31. If they can't the court will hit them w/"sanctions." Like what, exactly? Will they start subtracting votes from their total? Or maybe they'll threaten to give the seat to Barkely?

-- Still to come: Obama releases his "Blago files" 12/22 and wants his stimulus plan done by 12/25. And what about that IL SEN seat?

-- While the Hotline is off 'til 1/5, we'll still be covering it all. Check "On Call" for all the latest news.
