The man picked by the John McCain campaign to run the 2008 Republican National Convention resigned Saturday after a report that his lobbying firm used to represent the military regime in Myanmar.And another example of the next President's latent greatness and leadership and maverickness:[
A] rancher owning 250 acres that intermingled with federally owned forest started pushing for a land swap that provide him with federal land in exchange for his own -- land that he could develop. Such land swaps are fairly common, though obviously easily abused. He was able to get the support of ex-Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ), but without McCain's backing the bill died in 2002.Link.
After that, he decided to get smart and retained a number of lobbyists with connections to McCain. That, after all, is the way Washington works[.]
How lucky can a nation be to have these two exemplars as President, the prsent and future Beloved Leader??
