Clinton becoming a minister is unconstitutional

It is widely known, that Obama has asked Clinton to become the secretary of state. It has been widely discussed the possible outcomes of the choice, including things like how could Clinton block many Obama's decisions.

However, what is now surprising, is that the constitution itself does not allow Clinton to become the secretary of state. The constitution actually does not allow any Congress member whose salarie has been increased over the last year. 

The question now is: will the 'slight constitutional blockage' be ignored or respected?

On the 3rd, 10th and 17th of December we are very much looking forward to meeting our prospective UCAS journalism applicants for 2009 and we would like you all to be involved in this year's recruitment process. 

I'm looking to employ six student guides for each of those days to conduct tours of the campus and its facilities from 0930 to 1300 hours.

Newspapers During world War II

For a very brief introduction to popular newspaper coverage of WWII - including the films that were box office favourites during the Blitz and details of how Blackpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers competed with Arsenal and Everton in the League Championship - follow this link to the site I mentioned in our seminar. You will find out which newspaper asked "What would have happened if Hitler had married Mae West?"
