Coming to Newport: Bush, War College grads, governors and Tall Ships
On the same day President Bush is reportedly speaking at the Naval War College in Newport, Governor Carcieri is hosting a fund-raiser in the City by the Sea for the Republican Governors Association, which finances Republican campaigns for governor across the United States.
According to RGA spokesman Matt Moore, Carcieri will be joined by U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings and GOP governors Jim Douglas of Vermont, Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Matt Blunt of Missouri. Spellings will be the keynote speaker at the event, which will also feature a discussion of education and financial services, Moore said.
The meetings, including a luncheon, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Goat Island, overlooking Newport Harbor, where the Tall Ships are now gathering for a visit to the city this week.
The Republican contributors will also be feted at a New England clambake Thursday evening at the Eisenhower House (yes, named after former GOP President Dwight D. Eisenhower) at Fort Adams State Park.
The White House has not officially announced Mr. Bush’s visit yet, but state and federal officials have said that the Naval War College campus is being readied for a presidential visit. It would coincide with a 50th anniversary celebration of its Naval Command College, a school for military officers from around the world.
Carcieri has been in Prince Edward Island, Canada, over the past two days attending the annual conference of New England Governors and premiers from Canada’s eastern provinces.
Jeff Neal, Carcieri’s spokesman, declined comment on the governor’s fund-raiser, or Mr. Bush’s appearance, saying only that ``I expect the governor will be at the war college’’ on Thursday.

..but you can’t hide.
If Ravenel is convicted of distribution of cocaine, he can serve as much as 20 years in prison. I would say that it is more likely that he will cut a “plea deal” to serve a short amount of time behind bars along with probation.
If Ravenel cuts a “plea deal”, in other words, “pleads guilty” then the Feds should insist that he roll over on a “Bigger Fish” If he does not roll over, then he should do some serious jail time with the rest of the “Cocaine Distributors”.
