    Hold on to your cloaks.One scenario making the rounds in Washington is that if John Kerry is elected he'll nominate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to the US Supreme Court.There she would judge as a 'law and order feminist' in order to buidl credientials to evetually run for president after Kerry.Sounds crazy?Senate and even White House insiders said some moderate and female Republican senators might go for it and OK the cofirmation.

    THE man whose presidential ambitions were destroyed when he plagiarised Neil Kinnock is set to become America’s chief foreign policymaker if John Kerry is elected President next Tuesday. Senator Joseph Biden of Delaware has been asked by Mr Kerry to become Secretary of State in a Democratic administration, according to Kerry campaign aides. Mr Biden, the leading Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for the past four years, ran for President in 1988. His campaign ended abruptly when it was revealed that a key element of his stump speech had been lifted directly from Mr Kinnock’s general election speeches...

    If John Kerry becomes President he will find himself on the horns of a dilemma - which close friend to ditch when he chooses a new Secretary of State. According to today's Washington Post, Kerry would pick his national security team within a few weeks after winning the White House and two of his closest friends, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) or Richard Holbrooke reportedly want the job of running the State Department.

    If he wins the White House, John F. Kerry will immediately confront a difficult, divisive and deeply personal decision: which close friend will he have to stiff for secretary of state? Kerry, who would name a national security team a few weeks after the election, is said by campaign sources to be under a fair amount of pressure to pick Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) or Richard Holbrooke to help repair global alliances and attract new allies to assist in Iraq. Both men are seasoned diplomats, ambitious and close friends and political advisers to Kerry. And both clearly want...

    There is a bloc of voters that may easily decide the forthcoming election. A little over a million Serbian-Americans—their exact number is uncertain but this is a conservative estimate—are likely to vote this year in greater numbers than ever before. The significance of this group becomes obvious if we look at its geographic distribution. After Chicago, the main Serbian-American centers are Pittsburgh, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Milwaukee, WI. There are thousands of retirees in Florida and sizeable pockets in St. Louis (MO) and suburban New Jersey. In each of those states the size of the community exceeds the likely margin...

    Catholic Action ^ | 30th day of September 2004 | Several
    John Kerry purports to be a practicing Catholic, but when it comes to deciding what’s right and wrong for our country, he checks his Catholicism at the door to the Senate. He’s made clear that he will not rely on his Catholic faith as President: "I don't take my Catholic beliefs, my article of faith," he says, "and legislate it on a Protestant, on a Jew, or an atheist, who doesn't share it." Kerry’s record as a Senator demonstrates his hostility – if not utter contempt – for laws that reflect the religious and moral values that we Catholics hold...

    WASHINGTON -- Governors, campaign advisers and former presidential foes could end up in top Cabinet posts in a John Kerry administration, perhaps joined by a retired general and even a Republican or two. Political and business insiders would be a good bet as in any presidential administration. And plenty of names from the Clinton administration, four years out of office and some of them itching to return, are being tossed around. The Kerry campaign is keeping quiet so far about specific prospects for Cabinet positions if the Massachusetts senator should win the presidency in November. But that doesn't mean no...

    Reaching out for a job in a possible Kerry administration is tricky business. Look too eager, and you're doomed. Stay invisible, and you'll be overlooked. Since presidential candidates refuse to say who's on their list for the top posts, we poked around for who we think is likely to land in a John Kerry White House. Just bear this in mind: Anyone who really knows the lineup isn't saying; and anyone who is saying doesn't really know.

    Extreme Supreme A Kerry Court would be way left. By Walter M. Weber It is a political reality nowadays that the courts, and in particular the U.S. Supreme Court, trump the democratic process. Regardless of whether the Framers of the Constitution intended it to be so or not, we live in a de facto judge-run oligarchy. No number of laws — or votes — can overcome a court bent on enforcing its own views in the name of federal (or state) "constitutional rights." Liberals know this. They also know that the core of their political agenda will rarely, if ever,...

    As most of us yawned our way through the self-serving speeches of the Democratic National Convention and the coast-to-coast tour of the two Johns who want to run Washington next year, a select few were energized. These energized ones -- partly sycophantic and largely opportunistic -- are wannabe Cabinet members. In Boston, we watched claimants for the same job avoid each other. To wit, Rep. Gephardt, beloved by the labor unions, was careful not to run into Bill Clinton's favored claimant for the same job, Alexis Herman. Despite investigations of influence peddling, Herman has ended up with her own consulting...

    How much influence does Hollywood have on John Kerry? Listening to him during this campaign has been like watching the movie "50 First Dates," where Drew Barrymore's character has amnesia. Kerry has contradicted himself so often that one has to deduce that his memory is seriously failing, or he's so scarred by his Vietnam guilt-trip that he's perpetually flummoxed. (That is, if one doesn't want to call him a soulless politician who has no conscience, no core and panders to the moment.) Kerry's Democratic National Convention speech was a series of crazy contradictions to his 20-year Senate voting record on...

    WOODBRIDGE, NJ (Talon News) -- With the 4-day Democratic National Convention coming to a close in Boston, delegates who have had to sit through speech after speech and attend group-sponsored workshop after workshop have looked at other ways to break the monotonous schedule: predicting and speculating. One of the topics on delegates' minds was staffing a cabinet in a Kerry/Edwards administration. With the election still months away, traditionally, candidates do not reveal any plans for posts in their new administration, but that didn't stop delegates from airing their wish list of choices.

    John Kerry could be our next President, so like everyone else we're eager for clues to what his government would look like. One revealing indication came this week when the Massachusetts Senator floated the names of four possible Defense Secretaries: GOP Senators John McCain and John Warner, Democratic Senator Carl Levin, and former Clinton Defense Secretary Bill Perry. At the least, the four names do nothing to mar Mr. Kerry's reputation as an agile politician. His four choices cover the gamut of security opinion in both major parties -- from Mr. McCain on the hawkish end of the GOP, to...

Assemble the Kerry government and be afraid.It's unthinkable that ABB could take control.

    WASHINGTON Democrats worry that President Bush is slumping too soon.

But what if Senator John Kerry were to win? What boldface names would populate these pages in a Kerry administration? The time has come for those Russell Baker dubbed "The Great Mentioners" to anoint the hopeful few who will later be said "to have been mentioned for" posts of power.

Mr. Holbrooke, a former United Nations Ambassador who was Bill Clinton’s envoy to the Balkans, certainly is working for it. Many hours before his evening on Fifth Avenue, Mr. Holbrooke had started his day in Detroit, campaigning for Senator John Kerry. In the afternoon, he debated a Bush aide in Washington, D.C. He then finished his day-long marathon with two fund-raisers, including the one on Fifth Avenue. Ever the diplomat, Mr. Holbrooke...

    Likely Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry is considering tapping ex-President Bill Clinton to head up his foreign policy team as Secretary of State. When asked about making the offer to Clinton, Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter went out of her way to avoid denials. "President Clinton would clearly help the United States regain the respect of our allies across the world," Cutter told the New York Daily News on Thursday, before insisting it was too early to name potential Cabinet picks. Tapping the ex-prez for the top foreign policy post could help the Kerry campaign solve one of its thorniest...
