The latest edition of VOSD Radio, now up in the player on the right-hand side of the blog, is a good one so check it out.
I sat down with my guest host Mark Fabiani, Chargers special counsel, and we ended up breaking some news in the hour-long program: The team has had cursory discussions with city of San Diego officials after focusing their stadium search in Chula Vista for about two years; and Fabiani thinks his former boss, Al Gore, would’ve captured Osama Bin Laden had he won the 2000 election.
In addition to jumping into a discussion on the nitty-gritty of the team’s long-time search for a home and the economics of new stadiums, we also talked about some of the San Diego native’s other interesting assignments over the years, including his time as a deputy campaign manager on Gore’s 2000 campaign and as special counsel to President Bill Clinton during Whitewater.
The talk about Gore’s campaign was especially interesting when we talked about regrets and how Fabiani thinks Gore would’ve handled the war in Afghanistan.
Update: I originally wrote that Fabiani said Gore would’ve killed Bin Laden, but I just got finished listening to the show and realized that he said Gore would’ve captured Bin Laden. This post has been updated to reflect that. My apologies.
