Whitehouse dot gov has a new Office of Public Liaison & Intergovernmental Affairs (OPL-IGA) which is Barack Obama's gatekeepers to hoi polloi. They're going to be soliciting input from the citizens, and I urge everyone to give them more input than they can manage by asking them tough questions.

Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich - aka "Blago" - and his chief of staff have been arrested for trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat. And, Barack Obama - or at least his advisor Valerie Jarrett - probably knew what he was doing; see the "SEIU Official" paragraph below.

Media alert: Elvira Arellano has left the sanctuary (L.A., DC on tour) - 08/17/07

... a bit difficult. While Mayor Richard Daley, Governor Rod Blagojevich, and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez are backers, Barack Obama and Dick Durbin unfortunately realize how much of a liability supporting her would be. But, perhaps if we worked at it they could be brought around to support "immigrants rights".

Up to a few hundred thousand illegal aliens and their supporters marched for immigration "reform" in Chicago earlier today. Among those supporters are the local news media and politicians.
