When Obama won four years ago, the Washington state rumor mill started swirling tales of a cabinet post for the newly re-elected Gov. Gregoire.
It didn’t happen, and it was never realistic to think it would.
With Obama’s re-election and Gregoire’s retirement from her two-term gig as Governor, this rumor come off as more realistic:
Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire may wind up as Secretary of the Interior after President Obama completes an expected Cabinet reshuffle for his second term.
I hope so. Gregoire has been an excellent steward of Washington’s environs in her eight years at the top.
