So did you miss all the reports of him being considered for Secretary of State? If it weren't for Clinton, the job was his. How is the #3 spot in the Federal Government "any cabinet slot."

It's not. It's THE Cabinet spot.

Richardson didn't get any help from some mysterious hispanic lobby because he didn't need the help, he had a cushy job lined up based on his resume, not his skin color, sexual orientation, place of origin, etc. Obama is picking those most qualified, and I truly believe an openly homosexual politico will get a slot, so don't count it out when he hasn't officially announced anyone yet.

EDIT for personal feelings on the situation: I would be truly hurt, saddened, mad, etc. if Obama could not find a single spot for an openly gay politico.
