Jim Cooper is still getting lots of love in the national media as a possible Obama administration official, no matter how many times our humble congressman denies any interest. From the Washington Post:
One prospect for a top administration job, possibly at the Office of Management and Budget, who would test the Washington establishment is Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.), a crusader for government reform who annually publishes a dire alternative report on the federal budget.
Pith in the Wind
is betting that Cooper would take the OMB job if asked, but our opinion is influenced by our desire to cover the crazy special election that would follow for his seat. Already, at least three council members--Megan Barry, Greg Adkins and Jason Holleman--have said they might run.
