It appears, perhaps, that my concerns are being shared by the Bush Administration, like it or not.

Who is likely to replace Larry Lindsey, director of the National Economic Council (and architect of Bush's $1.5 trillion tax cut, BTW)? Stephen Friedman, a former co-chairman of investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs. Who was the other "co"-chairman? None other than Robert Rubin, initially Clinton's economic director and later replaced Lloyd Bentsen as Treasury secretary. I'm guessing that Bush is hoping that Friedman can bring similar success as Rubin did during the Clinton administration.

"For some, the final straw was O'Neill's decision to spend 10 days touring the impoverished nations of sub-Saharan Africa with Bono, the rock vocalist turned Third World evangelist." L.A. Times - Dec. 7.


Interestingly, in today's edition of the L.A. Times the story is framed in such a way that it makes the trip with Bono seem a joke of sorts, i.e., it's laughable that the Treasury secretary would go off on a 10 day trip (regardless of the agenda) with a rock star. The story on the front page of the Business section is accompanied with a picture, center page, of Bono and O'Neill in Africa.

That's a whole other issue. Bush is fiercely partisan when it comes down to it, and his idea of "bipartisan" is having Democrats vote the same way as Republicans.

There have been some political cartoons circulating concerning O'Neil and Bono...I have difficulty posting these but you can find them at http://cagle.slate.msn.com/politicalcartoons/

You might have to wade through a few but they should be there on the "Daily Index' of cartoons.
