Once again, Vince Leibowitz Capitol Annex has the scoop.
Leibowitz also notes that former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk may be up for Secretary of Commerce.
Congressman Chet Edwards (D-Waco) is reportedly a possibility for the Secretary of Veterans Affairs post in an Obama cabinet, but a longshot as him vacating his seat would undoubtedly leave it in Republican Hands. In addition, former Dallas Mayor Laura Miller is reportedly under consideration for an Obama administration post, although what that post might be and whether it is a cabinet-level post is uncertain.
We’ve also heard that Houston Mayor Bill White is “on the list,” for consideration, but for what post remains to be seen.
We've got our fingers crossed for both of our hometown candidates!
