Obama is not legally President. Also (from ):

Should the economic stimulus bill contain items not directly related to strengthening the economy or creating jobs?

Yes 9% (6337 votes)

No 91% (60856 votes)

I vote for "no" too.

Saint's preserve us! This Vermonter never saw George Bush set one foot in the state in eight years and now, a Democratic President wants to talk to our Republican governor after being in office not even two weeks.

Jim Douglas is one of the too few things right about the GOP. He's coping with a huge budget gap and trying to be fair with cuts and revenue. This is why in what is normally a "landslide" Democratic state he gets reelected.
