Hmmmm... Granholm's White House visit - just tailpipes?


(Read caption) Michigan Governor Jennifer 'laugh a minute' Granholm will appear with President Obama tomorrow to announce a tailpipe strategy. Her appearance also fueled speculation that perhaps she could be talking to the president about the soon-to-be-vacant Supreme Court seat.

A tailpipe strategy?

The only one that comes to mind is from that scene in Beverly Hills Cop when Axel Foley eluded Detective Rosewood and Sgt. Taggart through the strategic placement of bananas.

We're assuming that's not the national tailpipe emissions strategy that President Obama will unveil tomorrow.

Even if it is (and that would be newsworthy), it's the appearance of one Michigan governor that has a lot of pundits speculating.


Jennifer Granholm, the current Chief Executive of the Wolverine state, is scheduled to attend tomorrow's event.

She's no stranger to the Obama White House. In fact, during the 2008 campaign, she's the one they called in to prep then-Senator Biden for the high stakes vice presidential debate.

And considering Biden's loquacious nature, this was a titanic assignment. And considering that the debate was not Titantic-like, it speaks highly of Granholm's abilities.
