Paulson Spoke to AARP, Others

Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson had a sit-down with officials at the headquarters of AARP on Tuesday, the day the details of the partial nationalization of certain U.S. banks was announced, Treasury confirmed Thursday night.

In addition to selling his bailout plan to skeptical lawmakers, Paulson has been pedaling it to interest groups and discussing the broader economy, Treasury said.

In addition to AARP, Paulson has met with the Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition and other groups, Treasury said. Neel Kashhari, the man charged with administering the Wall Street bailout/rescue plan, also met with Jackson's group.

Rev. Al Sharpton began a drive to get prisoners registered to vote. This is like some kind of new PUSH. It's like we're in some sort of economic prison and the convicts have locked the guards up. Maybe we can get the convicts to foot the bailout tab and Paulson can visit the prisoners. I dunno.
