Rangel: “I’m Outta Here”
Rep. Charles Rangel of New York walked out of his ethics trial in protest today, complaining he did not have enough time to prepare. Rangel, a 20-term congressman, begged the ethics panel for yet another delay, saying his "50 years of public service is on the line." The House denied his request and began closed-door deliberations on 13 counts of alleged financial and fund raising misconduct that could bring formal condemnation. “Rangel failed to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars of earnings on his financial disclosure forms among other things,” Sean said adamantly. “He maintained several rent-stabilized apartments which he’s not allowed to do and didn’t pay income taxes on a villa in the Dominican Republic. His defense is absolutely hilarious,” Sean added { Article}.

Leadership And Crisis
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal joined the final hour of Monday’s program to discuss a fascinating new book written about the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Very few politicians have been tested as much as Bobby Jindal has over the past few years. From the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster to Hurricane Katrina, he’s shown an astounding ability to beat the odds (and beat the bureaucrats) to get things done. “If this oil crisis teaches us one thing, it’s that a distant central command and control model simply didn’t work with the fast moving crisis that was unfolding,” Jindal told Sean. Filled with behind–the–scenes stories from the oil–slicked beaches of Louisiana to the corridors of power in the U.S. Capitol, Leadership and Crisis offers an insider’s view into one of the worst environmental disasters our nation has suffered—and into one of the most unique success stories of American politics.

Did The White House Get The Message?
Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline for the show’s second hour. Sean asked both pollsters if they thought the Obama administration learned anything from the shellacking Democrats took on Election Day. “It’s anyone’s guess if they got the message,” Schoen told Sean. “The sources that I have tell me that they’re disorganized, chaotic and blaming each other. I think Obama should put politics aside and govern from the center to try to forge a consensus and solve our problems.” Caddell agreed with Schoen’s assessment. “We can’t afford to continue this process with the country in the trouble that it’s in – this requires the president to step up to the plate,” Caddell added.
