If she loses the election, she can still compete in the WWE.
The Obama Endorsements continue to roll in.
MANAGUA, Nicaragua: President Daniel Ortega, who led the 1979 revolution in Nicaragua, says Barack Obama’s presidential bid is a “revolutionary” phenomenon in the United States.
“It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. … but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change,” the Sandinista leader said Wednesday night as he accepted an honorary doctorate from an engineering university.
Now the Editors know where the Houston Campaign Office got their Che flag.
WASHINGTON (AP) – In a fresh sign of trouble for Hillary Rodham Clinton, one of the former first lady’s congressional black supporters intends to vote for Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention, and a second, more prominent lawmaker is openly discussing a possible switch.
Rep. David Scott’s defection and Rep. John Lewis’ remarks highlight one of the challenges confronting Clinton in a campaign that pits a black man against a woman for a nomination that historically has been the exclusive property of white men.
“You’ve got to represent the wishes of your constituency,” Scott said in an interview Wednesday in the Capitol. “My proper position would be to vote the wishes of my constituents.” The third-term lawmaker represents a district that gave more than 80 percent of its vote to Obama in the Feb. 5 Georgia primary.
Representing the wishes of your constituency, wow what a concept.
Many of the superdelegates who could well decide the Democratic presidential nominee have already been plied with campaign contributions by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, a new study shows.
“While it would be unseemly for the candidates to hand out thousands of dollars to primary voters, or to the delegates pledged to represent the will of those voters, elected officials serving as superdelegates have received about $890,000 from Obama and Clinton in the form of campaign contributions over the last three years,” the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics reported today.
And that doesn’t include the cost of bringing in the hookers for the Convention.
Cindy Sheehan continues to campaign for Pelosi’s seat by shoring up her political base.
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan joined a protest Wednesday seeking the support of Egypt’s first lady in ending a military trial of members of the country’s largest Islamic organization.
Under the watchful eyes of dozens of black-clad and helmeted anti-riot police, some 50 heavily veiled wives and children of 40 senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood detained for the past year, gathered in front of the headquarters of first lady Suzanne Mubarak’s National Council Women carrying banners calling for their release.
“I am here to protest the trial of civilians in front of a military tribunal as this is a violation to international law,” said Sheehan, who gained fame in the U.S. for her sit-in outside President Bush’s Texas ranch following the death of her son in Iraq.
“As a mother of a son who was killed in the war, I presented a letter to Ms. Suzanne Mubarak to realize how those women and children are suffering.”
If she had in fact lost a son in the WOT, one would think the Editors of the Roundup would have heard of it before now.

In Entertainment News, Jane Fonda refers to herself in the third person on Thursday’s Today Show.
“It wasn’t that I wasn’t a big fan,” Fonda said in the interview, discussing how she originally resisted getting involved with Monologues. “I hadn’t seen the play – I live in Georgia. Then I was asked to do a monologue called ‘c**t’, and I said, ‘I don’t think so. I’ve got enough problems.’”
And speaking of the “C” word.
One of Brian McNamee’s lawyers predicted Roger Clemens will be pardoned by President Bush, saying some Republicans treated his client harshly because of the pitcher’s friendship with the Bush family.
Richard Emery made the claims Thursday, a day after a congressional hearing broke down along party lines. Many Democrats were skeptical of Clemens’ denials he used performance-enhancing drugs and Republicans questioned the character of McNamee, the personal trainer who made the accusations against the seven-time Cy Young Award winner.
