ONCE AND FUTURE MAJORITY LEADER:

White House picks former Lott aide for federal appeals court (ANA RADELAT, 2/08/06, The Clarion-Ledger )

President Bush on Wednesday chose Jackson attorney Michael Wallace to fill a seat on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

"I appreciate President Bush offering me the opportunity to serve my state and nation," Wallace said.

A constitutional lawyer who once worked as a clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Wallace has close ties to Sen. Trent Lott, R- Miss.


The Trent Lott Comeback continues, his punishment for unacceptable speech having been served.

Not to mention the amount of class Trent has shown in handling the Katrina aftermath in his home state, even though his home was washed away. Kathleen Blanco, you may want to look toward this man if you think you're being slighted.

Wasn't impressed by Lott but Frist hasn't done much better with 4 or 5 more GOP Senators. Let's hope there's a few more GOP senators after November and make it easier for Lott or whoever to get some stuff done.
