Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

This could be it for Hillary Clinton. Democratic primaries in South Dakota and Montana Tuesday are the last of the bunch and could be sufficient to push Senator Barack Obama over the top with a little bit of Superdelegate juice. The Senator's husband, former President Bill Clinton told crowds in South Dakota Monday that this could be the very last day he campaigns for a candidate. In a related story sources are saying that the Obama campaign is negotiating with Hillary Clinton, presumedly to get her to campaign for Obama this fall in exchange the presumptive nominee paying off some of the New York Senator's campaign estimated $40 million campaign debt.

Rick Orlov must be reading Mayor Sam and Street Hassle. First he mentions that Mayor Villaraigosa is taking heat for his junket to Israel. Next he mentions in light of the Israel trip, speculation is rife on the blogosphere that Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky is running for Mayor. The only question is - Joe and I have been talking about these things for weeks - why did Rick wait until now to report this?

By way of Franklin Avenue we learn that Starbucks has picked LA to test a super secret new Italian style coffee beverage. Any idea what it might be?

The primary campaign season is over today and just in time for political consultants looking to get a new paycheck is the big battle over same-sex marriage. Both sides intend to raise upwards of $30 million in a likely ballot measure in November.

The City is planning to stick it to the tenants of Olvera Street, the many merchants who add to the flavor of the historic destination. Bill Rosendahl wants the vendor stalls to be raised to market rates even though many other tourist attractions are subsidized by the City. If the City is looking to balance it's books how about cutting back on the event waivers and leave the poor, mostly immigrant vendors of El Pueblo alone.

The mostly gay burg of West Hollywood is up in arms over a coming Walgreens. However Boi from Troy points out that a Walgreens in San Juan, Puerto Rico was the only business making a visible show of support for a gay pride event. Read between the lines of the anti-Walgreens screed it's more about supporting a union agenda and other liberal missions like impeaching President Bush.

Nice photo of Bill Clinton walking to church, or really a church photo opportunity, carrying a Bible. Its obviously not a real one, or else his hand would be on fire, but they do sell those new Bill and Hillary Clinton Edition contrarion versions now. The come with the 10 Commandments that include:

Thou SHALT lie.

Thous SHALT steal.

Thou SHALT covet (and more) they neighbors wife.

Thou SHALT bomb aspirin factory's to divert attention from getting BJs from ugly interns.

Will someone in the Valley be so kind to give Trujillo a ride home from Bob Hope Airport after "Mrs. Bill Clinton" concedes the delegate race tonight??

I'm very happy that the wicked witch is DEAD (at least for today)! They have put us through 500 days of hell...listening to that shrew screeching her brains out!

However, I am more concerned about the the fact that this city is under siege by the corrupt gangsters at the DWP! They are voting on Villar's Drought Buster bill...and you and I know they will pass it unanimously!

Our rights are being stripped from us...just read about the fines and the crap they are proposing...in Zahniser's column today!

They need to recyle the sewer water for outdoor irrigation instead of forcing us to DRINK the sewer water! How stupid can they be????

We are heading for DISASTER! These assholes won't stop the flood of illegals and the construction! There is NO GROWTH CONTROL...we are overpopulated by around 5M foreigners! And no end in sight!

We have to recall these bastards!

This sad lack of respect for the first viable woman presidential candidate says a lot about you.

Many decent people support her without resorting to criticizing Obama.

Stand out in the middle of the road in front of Arrivals at BHA.

I'll "pick you up," Trujillo (on the hood of my car), you ethically challenged apologist for corrupt politicians.

How soon before YOUR tell-all mouthpiece's book is in print:

How about we find a "viable" female candidate for president whose main - make that only real - accomplishment in politics isn't sharing a so-called marriage with a male president.

What the hell ever happened to the feminist movement? It was around here just a bit ago.

I mentioned these names today, at the poll, and many of the people had no memory of those people. Could they have forgotten so soon or are they just young?
