Damn, all I ever really knew him for was the “Top Gun” theme song and “Footloose”

He ripped the Doobie Brothers, “What A Fool Believes” (yea, I know he helped co-write it). But shit, I almost wish this were the original version.

I thought it was Jon B for second.

On the strength of this, I almost want to go pick-up one of his albums and see what he was really all about. – Heist

Secret service steps up inauguration security
Posted: 04:55 PM ET

WASHINGTON (AP) – Law enforcement officials bracing for the largest crowds in inaugural history are preparing far-reaching security — thousands of video cameras, sharpshooters, air patrols — to safeguard President-elect Barack Obama’s swearing-in.

People attending the ceremony and parade on Jan. 20 can expect to be searched by machines, security personnel or both. Precautions will range from the routine — magnetometers like those used at airports — to countersnipers trained to hit a target the size of a teacup saucer from 1,000 yards away. Plus undercover officers, bomb sniffing dogs and air patrols.

The Secret Service — the agency coordinating the security – also has assigned trained officials to identify and prevent cyber security risks. And, as it does at every inauguration, the service has mapped out escape routes for the 44th president.

In addition Washington’s 5,265 surveillance cameras, spread around the city, are expected to be fed into a multi-agency command center.

“When you have an event like the inauguration, the more eyes we have in and around the city the better off we are,” District of Columbia Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. Streets will be closed within seven-to-eight blocks on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue, and two-to-three blocks around each inaugural ball site, she said. Read the rest of this entry »

Gaspard to be White House Political Director

Patrick Gaspard, a longtime labor operative, will be the White House political director for President-elect Barack Obama, sources with knowledge of the negotiations confirmed to The Fix.

Gaspard served as national political director for much of Obama’s general election campaign and was named deputy director of personnel for the transition effort. Prior to his work with Obama, Gaspard was the lead political operative for the 1199 branch of the Service Employees International Union, a huge and hugely influential union representing health care workers in New York. He spent the 2004 general election as the national field director for America Coming Together.

“Patrick is a talented leader of our union and has made an incredible contribution to workers as an organizer and a political strategist,” said Anna Burger, the Secretary-Treasurer of SEIU. “We celebrate with him his new role. He’s earned it and will serve our country well.”

Gaspard was featured prominently in Ryan Lizza’s recent New Yorker piece detailing how Obama won.

Of his job interview with the Illinois senator, Gaspard recalled Obama saying: “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” Following the first general election debate between Obama and John McCain, Gaspard emailed his boss to praise him as “more clutch than Michael Jordan.” The Democratic nominee replied: “Just give me the ball.”

With the news of Gaspard’s hire, Obama has filled out much of his White House senior staff with Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel to be chief of staff, Greg Craig to be White House Counsel, Jim Messina and Mona Sutphen will be deputy chiefs of staff while Pete Rouse and David Axelrod will serve as senior advisers to the president. Robert Gibbs, one of Obama’s closest confidantes, is widely expected to be White House press secretary but no announcement has been made yet by the transition team.
