There are rumors floating about DC today that former Sen. Phil Gramm is about to be named Treasury Secretary to replace Secretary John Snow.
There were rumors earlier this week that Gramm was being offered a job as “senior counselor” to the President to oversee Congressional relations, among other things.
Gramm’s name have been floated a number of times over the past 18 months and nothing much has come of it. There are several other people who would love to put their hats in the ring for the Treasury job: Robert Kimmett and Tim Adams, both Snow deputy secretaries, have made it clear they would like the job. And White House chief of staff, Joshua Bolten spent five years with Goldman Sachs before moving to Austin in 1999, so he knows the senior Wall Street types that might be enamoured of the job.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
