The Note: Wright's Stuff

Rezko tidbit: "Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama is giving $2,300 in presidential campaign contributions to charity -- money he got from Aiham Alsammarae, a dual U.S.-Iraqi citizen who posted more than $2.7 million in property to help spring Tony Rezko from jail," Chris Fusco writes in the Chicago Sun-Times.

Veepstakes update: "I've got the job I want," Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., told Jay Leno Monday night (learning the right answers, fast). Yet: "It would be like saying I'm not going with that pretty girl to the prom before she asks you," Jindal said in not entirely ruling anything out. But: "I want to be Governor of Louisiana. If they let me I'd like to run for re-election."

The kicker:

"I'm open to being vice president." -- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, rather clearly joking, turning talk of a "dream ticket" into a Democratic nightmare.

"It was a brilliant speech." -- Former Washington mayor Marion Barry, after listening to Wright's National Press Club appearance.
