Obama's Team - A New Take

The chatter has been building this week that NJ Governor Jon Corzine is the front runner or close to it for the post of Treasury secretary in the Obama cabinet. As a New Jersey resident, even though I'd like to be rid of him, I don't think this makes much sense for the following reasons:

  • it is generally accepted that Corzine has done nothing positive for the NJ economy

  • there are already too many Goldman Sachs grads running around the treasury

The Boston Globe is reporting a strange twist - that Corzine is in the fray for the Secretary of State position that Hilary Clinton has her eyes on. I'm not sure that the Secretary of State ever actually does anything, so plugging the stately and wise-looking Corzine into that spot would be fine with me.
