CALIFORNIA. Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher (D) was tapped this week to serve in the Obama Administration as US Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security -- the Administration's top arms control negotiator. The centrist Tauscher -- who represents the CD-10 district which includes the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory nuclear weapons/WMD research and development facility --- has been recognized as an expert on nuclear weapons issues during her seven-terms in Congress. "Keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists, making sure other countries do not obtain them and, one day, I hope, ridding the world of these terrible weapons, has become my passion and, I hope, my life's work," said Tauscher. The swing district has a Dem lean -- and the Dem bench of hopefuls is more significant. If Tauscher is quickly confirmed by the Senate, a special election will likely take place in late Spring 2009.
Ok. That’s scary.
Brent Jones has name recognition.
I would hope his buddies, Ronnie Lott and Jerry Rice and Joe Montana and Dwight Clarke would like to help put a 49er in Congre$$ and not just let the country their kids inherit go to pot, literally before they are even dust in the sports history bin.
I had a blue dress when I was five, but I can’t wear it because it doesn’t fit me anymore.
Nice try to equate the maturity of an individual to the same in a nation.
NJ native, worked on wall street , “New Democrat” = centrist
a couple snips.. rip snorters actually in light of things today.
Ellen is currently serving her second term as the Chairman of the House New Democrat Coalition, a 67-member organization that ranks as the largest centrist caucus in the House of Representatives. The New Democrat Coalition is committed to enacting policies that maintain U.S. competitiveness, meet the challenges posed by globalization in the 21st century, and strengthen our national security. The New Dems are providing the needed leadership and policies that tap into our strengths and ensure that America maintains its prosperity and global leadership.
Rep. Tauschers has worked to stop the spread of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. She is the leader in the House of Representatives on the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundations Nuclear Threat Reduction Campaign which is working to reduce the threats associated with nuclear and biological weapons, and she is opposed to developing new nuclear weapons and nuclear bunker busters.
So she’s a communist mofo like the rest. Not surprising.
“”The Constitution was never meant to be the only set of laws that we follow. I had a blue dress when I was five, but I can’t wear it because it doesn’t fit me anymore”
Lovely woman. :p
So Sheriff Rupf, a Republican Sheriff in Conta Costra?
He sounds like he’d be the strongest candidate.
Which seat does Jones live in if he’s been approached about both 10 and 11?
