This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

The U.S. House of Representatives handily passed a bill last night that would provide up to $14 billion in bridge loans to automakers, but GOP opposition cast doubt about the bill’s fate in the Senate later this week.

President-elect Barack Obama yesterday called for Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to resign, a day after Blagojevich’s arrest on corruption charges. Obama said that it would be “difficult for the governor to effectively do his job and serve the people of Illinois.”

Officials connected to the Blagojevich investigation confirmed yesterday that the person referred to in the criminal complaint as “Senate Candidate 5″ is Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL). Jackson emphatically denied yesterday that he participated in the “pay to play” politics prosecutors allege the governor conducted in his search for Obama’s Senate replacement.

President-elect Obama today intends to round out his environmental and natural resources team with a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and three former Environmental Protection Agency officials from the Clinton administration.

“Joe the Plumber” is now telling people that he was appalled by John McCain’s reasons for supporting the government’s $700 billion bank bailout plan, and he said they nearly caused him to abandon McCain. He also says that he’s disgusted by people bashing Sarah Palin “for her sincerity.”
