Governor Richardson May Get China Post. Palin to Africa?

Specualtion continues to escalate about which New Mexico officials may be tapped by the Obama-Biden administration.

Governor Bill Richardson is reportedly being considered for Secretary of State, Secretary of Commerce, President of the World Bank, and now for Ambassador to China.
Senator Jeff Bingaman is apparently in the running for Energy Secretary, but told me on election night, he doesn't think he'll be asked. The state's soon-to-be Senior Senator say's he's flattered to be considered. It must be noted that Bingaman called the post, "the worst job in Washington."

From the Department of the Ridiculous
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is reaching out to President-elect Obama's transition team to indicate her interest in being named "ambassador to the nation of Africa." Senior Republican campaign staffers have told news outlets, that Palin did not know that Africa was a continent. Palin wants the appointment to Africa because, "it's a darned important country."

Gov. Palin said that although she had planned to continue in her position in Anchorage, she was willing to leave the governorship "because Africa is just such a darned important country."

"I have always been very, very interested in the nation of Africa, partly because of it being located where it is," she said. "If you are standing in Africa and you look real close, you can see South Africa."

She added that she had received phone calls encouraging her to vie for the post, including one from French president Nicholas Sarkozy.

In other news from the Palin family, Bristol Palin's fiancé Levi Johnston said he was "totally stoked" about Tuesday night's election returns, calling the results "definitely a game-changer for me."

"The election of Barack Obama means different things to different people," he said. "To me, it means freedom, dude!"

Maggie Toulouse-Oliver did a great job; the best in my memory.
It will be nice not to be the butt of jokes about vote counting incompetencies this election season.

Her County Clerk website is more proof of her dedication and skill set.

I'm with you; props to Ms Toulouse-Oliver.
