Hell, Her nomination just got endorsed by Ted Kennedy!
Oh, sh*t, now that's really scary!
Actually, surprisingly, no. Dubya and Teddy Kennedy actually worked together to craft "No Child Left Behind" and Spellings was a key part of that legislation. So, Teddy knows her well, and so it's not surprising that he would endorse her, and likely vote in favor of her nomination.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!
