Tony Snow Cleared by Doctors for W.H. Job

Good news for fans of Tony Snow, even if he decides against taking the job as White House Press Secretary. I'm delighted to hear he is doing so well after a grueling health ordeal.

UPDATE: CNN is reporting as breaking news at 7:00 p.m. PDT that Tony Snow is "likely" to take the job as White House Press Secretary.

Free Republic has a thread up to discuss the news. Tony, believe it or not, is a FReeper who uses his real name, Tony Snow, as his handle.

CNN has now posted the story on their website.

Don't you think Tony would be the perfect choice for the job?! He's so amiable & likeable that the MM bullying tactics by the likes of David Gregory could seriously backfire on them. I'm just not sure I want to wish that type of job-stress upon Tony.

P.S. I'm also from Orange County (Cypress), and have greatly enjoyed blogging. Your blog is a lot of fun to peruse. Good Job!

By the way Laura, congratulations on your daughter's acceptance into USC! How exciting! My son is completing his junior year at Los Alamitos H.S., and we're beginning to seriously think about colleges. He plans on attending a business college, and we're trying to decide if the exhorbitant tuition of USC is worth it vs. a Cal State San Diego/or San Luis Obispo. We're strongly leaning towards making it his #1 choice. His GPA is about 3.7, & he's taking his 1st SAT in 2 weeks, so its' a close call whether he even gets in. Any advice you can give about USC would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

I adore Tony Snow. Of course he is a native Cincinnatian so I'm partial. I think he would do a great job.

Time will tell.

Hi Mike, we live in the same neighborhood as your gym. :) I'll enjoy checking out your blog!

Thanks for your good wishes on college! She applied to USC almost as a last-minute "Why not see?" kind of idea. To our surprise the financial aid was quite competitive and despite being the most expensive college to which she applied, she also received some of the best financial aid from USC. In fact we had to decline offers from schools which were much less expensive but had very limited financial aid available, so you never know for sure how things will pan out. USC apparently has very large endowments to tap on for scholarships as well as the need-based aid. It's still a big price tag which will require some student loans, but we decided the investment would be worth the long-term payoff. Marshall Business College would be an excellent choice.

USC is increasingly selective as more and more people apply -- we were told they received more applications this year than any private university in the nation -- but while their average SAT score for the fall was 2100, they are also looking for people who are well-rounded in a variety of ways. I highly recommend monitoring the USC page at the College Confidential website, where people who have been admitted share their stats and activities and can give you a better idea of what your son should shoot for if he's interested in pursuing USC as an option.

That said, my niece is a recent graduate of Cal Poly SLO and loved it. The campus apparently isn't that nice-looking, for a school which has a great architecture program (grin), but I hear excellent things about the school.

Good luck to you and your son! Best wishes, Laura

Isn't Tony wonderful, Cathy? I've been a fan since he used to sub for Rush Limbaugh years ago. He told the most wonderful stories about his family -- I particularly remember his description of a vacation in Italy, it was lovely.

I'll be interested to hear how this develops. Best wishes, Laura

PS I meant Marshall Business School (not College) at USC, of course! :)

Thanks for the info about USC. I'm sure your dtr.'s going to love it, and that it'll serve her well in her life & career. Hopefully (knock on wood), my son will also be accepted there.
