This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Detroit’s big three auto makers are begging Congress for a $25 billion government rescue, while the legislation clings to life support on Capitol Hill and top lawmakers and the White House suffer from bailout fatigue.

Former President Clinton’s international business dealings, global foundation, and penchant for going off script could present a significant obstacle to Hillary Clinton becoming Secretary of State. His complicated global business interests could present future conflicts of interest that result in unneeded headaches for President-Elect Obama.

President-Elect Obama and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said yesterday that Americans are looking for leaders who will come together and “change the bad habits of D.C.” The former rivals said after yesterday’s meeting that “Americans of all parties want and need their leaders… to solve the common and urgent challenges of our time.”

Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) returned to Capitol Hill yesterday after a battle with brain cancer that hospitalized him in May. He appeared eager to get back to work. “I feel fine… looking forward particularly to working with Barack Obama on health care,” he said.
