The President is working on a major speech on corporate responsibility, just as the first hearings begin on the WorldCom scandal.
Also today, Bush will lose a key member of his inner circle, counselor Karen Hughes.

Congressman Jim Moran is disputing reports that he received preferential treatment from a credit lender, days before becoming a leading supporter of bankruptcy reform legislation that the company was pushing. The Washington Post says the Democrat from Alexandria closed on a home refinancing package worth 447-thousand dollars with M-B-N-A Corporation in 1998 -- then signed on as the lead Democratic co-sponsor of the wide-ranging bankruptcy reform bill four days later. Moran says the timing of the loan was "coincidental'' ... and the credit lender never lobbied him for the legislation.
