President Elect to Visit Ground Zero

WASHINGTON - President-Elect Allen Rickham will visit Ground Zero in Midtown Manhattan as a part of his journey to New York City to meet with the survivors of the tragic Washington-Irvine High School bombing. Though plans are still in the works, Rickham will also make an appearance at the ruins of CitySoft Inc., according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.

"We have not announced all of those details yet. The one thing I can say is that the President-Elect will visit all three sites during his trip." Dana said earlier this week in a press conference held at the White House.

Speculations have arisen that the President-Elect is visiting New York City with the intention not only of touring the devastation of the recent terror attacks, but also to court New York Senator Nathan Petrelli for a potential Secretary of State position. With Rickham's party affiliation sitting squarely in the middle of the aisle, it makes sense for him to reach out to both sides in an attempt to pull the nation together in this time of great crisis.

The Petrelli camp has been tight-lipped about this potential offer, but inside sources say that there is truth to the rumor, but that the Senator is more than likely considering a return to his position as a representative of New York City.
