This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Caroline Kennedy has given up her bid for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton. In a one-line statement citing personal reasons, the widely considered front-runner said early this morning she told New York Gov. David Patterson a day earlier that she was no longer interested in the job.

President Obama retook his oath of office yesterday after Chief Justice John Roberts flubbed while delivering it at Tuesday’s inauguration. The do-over was aimed at dispelling any confusion that might arise from Tuesday’s take – in which “faithfully” was said out of sequence – and erase any question that Obama is legally the president.

Promising “a new era of openness in our country,” President Obama signed executive orders yesterday relating to ethics guidelines for staff members of his administration. Obama also said he would issue a pay freeze for his senior staff members and promised swift action on the beleaguered economy.

Sen. Norm Coleman began packing his Capitol Hill office yesterday, but said he has no intention of giving up his legal fight to serve another term in Congress. Coleman claimed that Al Franken’s 225-vote lead was “artificial” and expressed hope that the courts will rule in his favor on ballot disputes when a court hearing begins next week.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will announce the Oscar nominations this morning. Front runners for Best Picture are “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Frost/Nixon,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” and “Milk.”
