Score one for Frank. From "Jamie McCourt was interested in public office, estranged husband says" by Bill Shaikin at the LA Times:
In a December 2008 e-mail, Dodgers executive Charles Steinberg presented [Jamie McCourt] with "Project Jamie," a seven-page action plan that included this line: "Goal: Be Elected President of the United States."
I don't even know where to start with this one. Credit Jamie for deflecting this latest embarrassing report ("That would be a nice goal, but this is Charles's memo," she said), but it's doubtful Steinberg was operating in a vacuum. (Or maybe he was. Lady Charles Macbeth? Vice President Steinberg?)
Jamie's political aspirations may be good for a yuk, but in the end this makes everyone involved look bad and makes us fans even more ashamed for the team. Can we start playing baseball already?
UPDATE 3/17 1:21a (Sax): LAT Dodger blogger Steve Dilbeck also wants to run for president, too. Guess it's a Jamie / Steve primary in California! Can't wait for the debates!
