Can someone please explain what Obama means by "shortly"?

They sure are working overtime to make it look as if this high profile position was not technically considered a "job".

What's this I hear that they've contacted Bill Clinton to help put this Sestak fire out.

So what type of a President is Obama if he needs a guy like Clinton to bail his ass out of this scandal?

Rumor has it that Sestak was to be offered Secretary of the Navy in exchange for bowing out of the race - which is against the law. You know, they call it rigging an election. Of course, if they can get people to believe that it was only an offer of a non-paid position of some sort, that changes things.

Ask yourself - would you give up an election bid in exchange for an unpaid gig, or would that sort of bribe only work if the offer was something big?

Another rumor is that Clinton agreed to help put out this fire in exchange for Obama to not run for re-election in 2012 and instead to help push Hillary into the White House.

That's not rigging an election, rigging an election is when you tamper with votes or vote multiple times, etc, not just paying someone not to run, thats just a crappy payoff that obviously won't work anyways.

First of all Obama will run for reelection. That's not seriously in doubt is it ?
Sounds like a highly scurrilous rumor.

I heard Sec of the Navy, but I think that was later confirmed to be a position on an unpaid intelligence advisory board. Still a prestigious position, and one that would afford ample connections to defense industry executive jobs or lobbying Congress or whatever.

Ideally I think Obama just wanted Sestek to stay put in his safe House seat. But once they saw how vulnerable Specter became, they really couldn't care less he was toast.

I really fail to see anything unethical in what ocurred. The election law expert Fox News invited to be interview "On the Record" stated the laws people are quoting against him were not made for situations like this. There was no crime. If you want to complain about a crime, complain about the lack of independent govt regulatory oversight of industry and finance.

Our press must be the biggest bunch of pussies in the world. Why not say, "Just tell us whats going on". They instead allow him to run around without calling him out. The press is the strongest ally to a free people, unfortunately we don't have one.
