The White House on Thursday named Jay Carney, the husband of ABC News reporter Claire Shipman, to be the new White House Press secretary. Carney is also an ex-journalist, formally of Time magazine.

Will this appointment prove to be a conflict of interest for Shipman? Will she continue to report on the Obama administration? Shipman whose title is senior national correspondent, often covers political stories and has a reputation as an activist liberal. In 2008, she hailed Barack Obama, the now-boss of her husband, as "brave" for a speech disassociating himself with radical preacher Jeremiah Wright. In 2007, she fawned over Obama's "fluid poetry."

In 2000, she lauded Al Gore as a "pretty conservative Democrat." In 2004, discussing former Communist leader Mikhail Gorbachev, she ltouted him as "generally regarded" for being "the man who broke down the ‘Iron Curtain.'"

I just don't get all the fawning over Obama's fabled speaking abilities. He really isn't all that good. Compare his style and delivery with ML King, Ronald Reagan, Lou Holtz, or any one of the great speakers in the world, and he just doesn't measure up.
But fawn Shipman does. I haven't looked, but I would not be surprised to find where she has also bought into the Michelle Obama being the most beautiful woman in the world nonsense, too.

"Carney"-- Pretty much sums up the Obama administration.
