10. not sure it was planned on their part
but all the SoS speculation has dominated the news cycle and puts the Obama Transition back front and center in a more positive way. Discussing the strengths of a range of Dem leaders sure beats the Rahm stories and Palin/RGC fluff.

2. I always envisioned Bono doing work in the Senate
Look at his ability to reach across the aisle!

3. what was that all about?
Bono seems like a good guy. Why on earth would he think Jesse Helms was a good guy?

13. I had forgot about that
Do you have to be an American citizen to be an American diplomat?

I'm thinking "yeah," but maybe that's a shame. :D

ONLY way SHT is going to get done.

7. Bono's dedication to humanitarian work is so strong that it has made him some strange bedfellows.

12. I think it might also be his dementia setting in.
Perhaps he thought he was meeting a real cowboy.

8. I guess you're right. Maybe he does have what it takes for diplomacy if he can stomach Helms for...
the common good once in a while.

19. Sonny, say it ain't so
Oh no, not Bono! With his ghost in the cabinet, next thing you know, Cher will want to be Secretary of State!

(I know you are all groaning now - yes it's a very lame joke - but I had to do it)
