I think it's neat how he's sooooo proud of his nominees.

...who were the 2 senators who DID NOT vote?

Not voting were Sens. Max Baucus, D-Mont., and Arlen Specter, R-Pa. No word on why they didn't vote.

It says it was from February 11, Wolfstar, but I have no idea what event it was taken at.

Most curious!

If Specter's on the judiciary committee, and Chertoff's been DOJ, maybe a conflict of interest?

Yes. He knows he's picked good men and women, and he's proud to work with such a quality team.

Do you think he is or has been ill or do you think he is a health freak?

I don't know. In photos taken of him just a few years ago, he looked a lot less emaciated. News reports today describe him as a "fiery, wiry workhorse." Maybe he has the type of intense, workaholic personality that burns off calories faster than he can take them in.

"If the President has confidence in Chertoff, that's good enough for me. But I sure wish the new secretary looked less emaciated."

And sounded less like Bill Clinton. I was completely startled when I heard him on the radio today.

I'm not up on Chertoff. Do you know a reader's digest version about him?

Neither am I, really. I do know this is the third time he's been confirmed by the senate for something. Last two times were for federal judgeships. Let me see if I can find a bio. If so, I'll post a link later on this thread.

**(What's WRONG with this picture??)**

I think its just that he looks very thin and older than his years.

RE; Chertoff being emaciated . . . my theory is he eats no red meat. That's why he looks so pale as well as skeletal.

The Pres. is almost a health freak, and of course exercises, but he eats red meat and looks lots healthier.

A very brief bio of Chertoff, the only one I found in a Google search.

phillyburbs.com/pb-dyn/news/103-01112005-430499.html

Something a little more informative from the Village Voice.

Chertoff earned a reputation as a tough investigator of President Clinton's Arkansas business dealings when he served as chief counsel to the Senate Whitewater committee in 1994-96. No charges were ever filed against the president or Hillary Rodham Clinton, now a Democratic senator from New York. She said Tuesday that his nomination "merits careful consideration."

Can't remember who watched Amazing Race, but tonight Dr. Phil has a special on romance on TV, and he's going to have the couple that fought horribly during the whole race. Looks like it will be a good special--there are other couples on, too.

So, what was the President doing on the 11th? Gonna have to do a little digging...

The only public appearances that day were the ceremonial swearing in of Mike Leavitt as the new HHS secretary. It was at the HHS building, I think. Then, that night, the President and First Lady hosted the "Lincoln: Seen and Heard" performance in the WH. So if the photo was taken on the 11th (Yahoo captions have been known to be wrong -- a lot), the photo must have been from one of those appearances.
