He asked the Muslim world via Al-arabiya: what can Al Qaeda, Hamas, and their other warrior arms bring to them but death and destruction? What can your children look forward to but death and proverty? What does the Muslim world want?

OBAMA'S 'RIVALS' WILL GET ICED!

Podesta warns Obama's rivals...

"The people who develop rivalries in the Obamaland? They don't do so good. You may not have noticed that during the course of the campaign. But people who are shooting at each other? They tend to get iced out," Podesta told me.

Obama,not afraid to keep strong counsel, will not tolerate those who don't know the value of teamwork.

WOULD LINCOLN BE HAPPY WITH THE ELECTION OF PRESIDENT OBAMA?

Leonard Pitts gets it right in his latest article...
Abraham Lincoln did not believe in the equality of black people. He did, however -- and this was no minor distinction in his era -- believe in their humanity. He also abhorred slavery. But he was willing to countenance it if doing so would have vindicated his primary goal: to save the Union.
Should acknowledging the myths about the Great Emancipator violate your image of our 16th president?

PARDON LIBBY PRESIDENT BUSH

Image
Lately Fred Barnes and I haven't been agreeing on much, but we agree FREE SCOOTER LIBBY.

Like many journalists in Washington, I've followed the Libby case closely. It grew out of the leak in 2003 of the name of a CIA official, Valerie Plame, to columnist Robert Novak. Libby was not the leaker. Then deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage was. At his trial, Libby was acquitted of the one count that
dealt with an alleged leak to a reporter.

Anybody remember Richard Armitage was the leaker? Do the right thing Mr. Bush.

OBAMA'S LETTER TO SASHA AND MALIA

'What I Want for You — and Every Child in America'


Dear Malia and Sasha,

I know that you've both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn't have let you have. But I also know that it hasn't always been easy for you and Mom, and that as excited as you both are about that new puppy, it doesn't make up for all the time we've been apart. I know how much I've missed these past two years, and today I want to tell you a little more about why I decided to take our family on this journey.

Digital TV Transition Program Runs Out of Money

Good. A billion dollars should have never been spent to provide coupons for citizens without a converter box.

In letters to members of Congress, President Bush, and President-elect Obama, Consumers Union pointed to the fact that the government program that subsidizes crucial TV converter boxes has run out of money, and hundreds of thousands of affected consumers are now on waiting lists for coupons.

If any American hasn't figured out that the broadcasting community is switching its signal from analog to digital, then they don't need to watch television. Go read a book .... and by the way, help your kids with their homework! Consumer's Union, are you out of your damn mind?

SONJA KOHN: BRASH BANKER DISAPPEARS

Image
Not known for her friendly manner, Sonja Kohn, a Madoff associate, has even less friends...




"With an aggressive style that stood out in the staid world of Austrian banking even more than her bouffant red wig, Sonja Kohn made few friends gathering billions for Bernard Madoff from wealthy investors in Russia and across Europe.

Now, she has even fewer. Kohn has dropped out of sight, leaving the firm she founded, Bank Medici, in the hands of the Austrian regulators, who took it over last week."

Kohn's clients lost $2.1 billion dollars in the Madoff investment scam.

Update (1/14): Kohn makes statement; attempts to distance herself from Madoff.
