It's a brand new developed position from my understanding...

Is the pic of Suzie Orman a joke?

He asked Nancy Killefer. Is my radar off today, is there something I'm missing?

Good for Gupta!

It actually makes a lot of sense. He has political experience. He served as a White House Fellow, and was an advisor to Hillary during the Clinton administration.

with all the wrong that's been glaring in our faces lately about the US political process, and the way our government operates in general... this picture pretty much sums up all that is right...



every living former, current, and future leader... standing in the oval office, together... each one having taken over for the other without blood shed... knowing that the office is bigger than the person occupying it.

Um, ok..


(AP)TOLEDO, Ohio — Joe The Plumber is putting down his wrenches and picking up a reporter's notebook.

The Ohio man who became a household name during the presidential campaign says he is heading to Israel as a war correspondent for the conservative Web site pjtv.com.

Samuel J. Wurzelbacher says he'll spend 10 days covering the fighting.

He tells WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants to let Israel's "'Average Joes' share their story."

Wurzelbacher gained attention during the final weeks of the campaign when he asked Barack Obama about his tax plan.

He later joined Republican John McCain on the campaign trail. At one stop, he agreed with a McCain supporter who asked if he believed a vote for Obama was a vote for the death of Israel.

Actually, the one who took over for Carter is no longer with us.

But I digress.

Jimmy Carter looked very uncomfortable

Bill Clinton liked the new Oval Office rug. Guess he had some memories there...

I should get that, that might become a collectible. But there aren't any comic book shops near me.







WASHINGTON (AP) - Spider-Man has a new sidekick: The president-elect.

Barack Obama collected Spider-Man comics as a child, so Marvel Comics wanted to give him a "shout-out back" by featuring him in a bonus story, said Joe Quesada, Marvel's editor-in-chief.

"How great is that? The commander in chief to be is actually a nerd in chief," Quesada said. "It was really, really cool to see that we had a geek in the White House. We're all thrilled with that."

The comic starts with Spider-Man's alter-ego Peter Parker taking photographs at the inauguration, before spotting two identical Obamas.

Parker decides "the future president's gonna need Spider-Man," and springs into action, using basketball to determine the real Obama and punching out the impostor.

Obama thanks him with a fist-bump.

Marvel comics have featured most presidents, but generally in walk-on roles, Quesada said.

"I think President Nixon might have appeared on the cover, but not in a good way," he said.

Obama has said that as a child, he collected Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comic books. His Senate Web site used to have a photo of him posing in front of a Superman statue.

The Obama story is a bonus in Marvel Comic's Amazing Spider-Man #583, available in comic book shops nationwide on Jan. 14 for $3.99 and is expected to sell out, with half the covers devoted to Obama.

Yeah. It's not apparent in that picture, but on tv the film showed him standing way back from the others.

It's also interesting watching W morph into his father.

Bush Sr, should have stood between Carter and Clinton.

Then it would have been chronological.

And Bush Sr was part of the Reagan - Bush Presidency.

(or maybe Sr, thought he was saving a place for Jeb)
