There's only room for one Kwame in Detroit

One Kwame arrives, another steps down.

Kwame M. Kilpatrick, the charismatic mayor of Detroit who has been embroiled in legal problems stemming from a sex scandal since the beginning of the year, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice and agreed to resign Thursday morning as part of a deal with prosecutors.

In other thoughts, I'm trying to put together a pre-presidential election all-star team for each candidate. We'll then simulate the games to see which team wins. So far, for the ObamAllStars, I have Baron Davis at the point, Kareem at the center (with Greg Oden backing him up off the bench), Etan Thomas at the power forward (maybe I'm missing someone?), Grant Hill at the 3, and Joe Dumars as the shooting guard (Obama himself can come in off the bench).

On the McCain side (I can't think of a catchy name), we have Gilbert Arenas at the point (with Sarah Barracuda Palin backing him up), and Spencer Hawes at the 4. They'll probably have Coach K from Duke as the coach. After that, I'm not really sure how to finish constructing the team. Anybody know any ballers who happen to be McCain supporters? As it is, it looks like the ObamAllstars would destroy the McCain team.
