set to anoint Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, I wonder what the
outcome will be; I'm really not sure she is the best person for this
critical role right now. At the same time, we've survived Condi's
managerial ineptitude. And given the choice between Kerry and Clinton

wish she were staying in the Senate to raise hell there. I suspect
she'd do far more good.
WaMu is axing more than 1,500 workers here in the Bay Area, and with
the bellwether of Citi, I suspect that's just the beginning of the
next wave of layoffs we are going to see in the finance sector.
