Here is an update. The pale green boxes are expected to announced in the next week. The dark green have been announced, with the exception of Tom Daschel. I forgot to change to color.
Tuesday, December 16
Ok, the Washington Post is reporting that Xavier Becerra may not be the nominee for Trade Rep after all. Apparently, Latino groups are unhappy and Becerra may opt to stay in the House. I left his name there, but it is now in question.
Also, Sen. Specter has said that he will hold up Eric Holder's (no pun intended) nomination hearings until Jan 15. After all of the antics that the Attorneys General have pulled over the last 8 years, and all of the financial corruption that has been demonstrated in the last weeks, they are delaying Holder's nomination to further investigate his role in a single presidential pardon of Mark Rich? Look, the guy did deals with Iran during the Hostage Crisis. That was bad. But Lewis Libby who had his 30 month prison sentences commuted, assisted in the outing of a CIA agent. So . . . game even. Game over.
Looks like the Republicans want to fight yesterday's wars. Tisk tisk. Such animosity toward the Clintons still exists . . .talk about beating a dead horse and holding a grudge!
