Senator Kerry is the Chairmen of the Senate Forign Relations Committee…….

Hillary Clinton has just about paid off all of her campaign bills, and has money left over……….

The Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who is now enjoying very good poll numbers has paid off every creditor, except for the political consulting firm owned by her campaign polling person, Mark Penn……after paying Penn’s firm, she would still have more than a million dollars in her campaign’s bank account. Prohibited from doing anything to raise money because of her official position, one wonders what is going to happen to all of that spare change?…….and of course, other people can work to get donations for her campaign fund anytime they want…..Now lets see….Didn’t she say several times this week that she wasn’t gonna run for president?…..I know I heard that…….Right?

Honduras…..concerned with the US …..plays the American game…it hires Lobbyist's……

Since the Honduran government kicked out its last President Manuel Zelaya ( who counts Hugo Chavez of Venezuela as a close friend ) for trying to give a referendum on his staying in office, against the wishes of the county’s courts and military. The United States, and especially Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been pissed at the country…Clinton even went so far as to stop the American foreign aid money to the country…….

The Hondurans…who are trusted allies in the American fight against drugs, have worked quietly to put together a group to lobby the administration to calm down and see things their way……They have enlisted several old timers (from GOP and  Bush admin) including Otto Reich, Roger Noreiga and Daniel Fisk to lobby congress (at a cost of over $400,000)….they have got the attention they sought because, when they organized a meeting in the senate after the ouster, eight senators showed up, an unusual occurrence. Old timers senators, especially Republicans, still look at South America as a danger spot , and are willing to stand behind Honduras, because of its strategic value, and its history of its pro american stance, regardless of an ex-president that keeps friends that have called for the US to get out their region.

The administration has gotten a push back on it stance from Congress which has refused to approve several State Department appointees for the region …..

And Mr Zelaya now, remains….A man without a country…….
