"With Rumors That Arne Duncan May Step Down as Sec. Of Ed,"......

>>With rumors that Arne Duncan may step down as secretary of Education, we nominate Randi Weingarten to replace him. Risky? You bet. But as the president of the American Federation of Teachers, Weingarten has long claimed to support education reform, so long as it is done with the nationís teachers instead of at their expense. Making Weingarten the next education secretary would give her the chance to put her money where her mouth is.>>

Joe Nocera, OpEd, today's NYT.


As even the most improbable rumors often have a "self-fulfilling prophecy" quality... I'm happy to pass this one along. With hope in my heart and a smile on my face.

No endorsement of...or illusions about... the ever-slippery Weingarten.

Sweetbabyjesus, please let it be true.

4. What? An expert on something in the cabinet?

Travesty.

More likely will be someone from Teach for America. Corporate-minded and anti-people. That's our cabinet.
