Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Rick Perry endorses Romney for President after Gingrich signals exitWashington - Texas Governor Rick Perry, who ended his bid for the White House race in January, has endorsed Mitt Romney for President.

Perry, who earlier endorsed Newt Gingrich, now said the former Massachusetts governor, whom he once called a "vulture capitalist," has "earned the nomination."

"Today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for president and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party that I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama," Fox News quoted him, as saying.

"American jobs, economic stability and national security depend on electing a new president. Mitt's vision and record of private-sector success will put America back on the path of job creation, economic opportunity and limited government," he added.

Perry's endorsement comes shortly after it emerged that Newt Gingrich, a former speaker of the House, plans to end his campaign on Tuesday.
