What Does Clinton Want?
Speaking in Kuwait yesterday, Bill Clinton sounds like he wants his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, to become the next Secretary of State in the Obama administration.

He claims not to know much about the discussions, but adds, “If I did, I wouldn’t tell you.”

Meanwhile, Mike Allen reports that the Obama team, “after all but offering SecState to Senator Clinton, is expressing EXASPERATION with the Clinton camp for the difficulty in getting a clean vet on President Bill Clinton’s many entanglements.”

However, Ben Smith says sources tell him that Sen. Clinton herself is conflicted about taking the job.

Colorado Independent reports that Focus on the Family “is poised to announce major layoffs to its Colorado Springs-based ministry and media empire today.” The layoffs come after the right-wing group spent more than $600,000 to defeat marriage equality in California. Praising the passage of Prop. 8, the group said that the measure “helps protect millions of children from radical indoctrination in the homosexual lifestyle.” The group also touted its involvement collecting signatures and gathering donations, patting itself on the back for being “integrally involved” in the fight against marriage equality.

How to Bail Out General Motors

How to Bail Out General Motors
WASHINGTON — So it’s come to this: General Motors, once the world’s mightiest industrial enterprise, is now flirting with bankruptcy. Ford and Chrysler may not be far behind. Car and truck sales have collapsed. With cash reserves rapidly falling, GM may soon be unable to pay its bills. Here’s the dilemma. GM and other U.S. automakers ought to be rescued to minimize damage to the economy; but the rescue should require tough conditions that neither the Democratic Congress nor the incoming Obama administration yet supports. In a booming economy, a GM bankruptcy might be tolerable and useful. It would remind everyone of the social costs of mediocre management and overpriced unionized labor. But far from booming, the economy is declining at an apparently accelerating rate. By one survey, confidence among small businesses is at a 28-year low; in October retail sales dropped a stunning 2.8 percent.
