The following is from the political news website, Politico. Should President Obama win a 2nd term, could Governor Markell leave Delaware to take a cushy role in DC? His frequent TV appearances, push to get a national role with the DGA, and his active travel schedule certainly imply that Delaware is too small of a pool for his many talents.
Maybe he should be asked if he’ll “sign the pledge” to serve for 4 years.
Some other possible picks:
• Michelle Rhee, the former D.C. schools chancellor, is rumored as possible education secretary but is such a lightning rod that she likely will not get it. Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, chairman of the National Governors Association, is a possibility.
