Flotsam & Jetsam
Making the rounds… • You won’t have to look further than Peter Spaulding if and when Charlie Bass decides he’s had enough of MTBE and Washington — not necessarily in that order. • There’s one thing we all can be thankful for - that President Bush didn’t ask Dick Cheney to head up a committee to pick the next Supreme Court nominee. • It’s not clear who Newport selectmen were trying to impress when a letter to the editor written by one of their number demands that Governor Lynch allow the Executive Council to vote on Mt. Sunapee expansion. • Exactly how warmly would a Judd Gregg nomination to the Supreme Court be greeted once it was pointed out that he’s one of 10 senators not to co-sponsor a bill apologizing for the Senate’s failure to enact anti-lynching legislation? • All you skeptics owe Charlie Bass an apology - he actually was named to the energy bill conference committee. • You’ve been warned: In the second quarter, Hillary Clinton raised $6 million for her 2006 “Senate” campaign and is on pace to raise $50 million by January 2007.
