Secretary Spanier Speculation Spreads

Yesterday, we posted that President Spanier is being considered by President-Elect Obama for Education Secretary,

The most notable speculation came from Marc Ambinder, a blogger for The Atlantic. Credit for first pointing out that post goes to @ByDanielVictor, who sent out the link on Twitter.

Today, the Collegian ran this above the fold story with quotes from several people. Neither Onward State nor @ByDanielVictor were cited.

The Collegian article did not significantly change our understanding of the story, but the paper did contact President Spanier for a comment.

Spanier, who is a registered Democrat, wrote in an e-mail Wednesday he was out of town, had not seen Ambinder’s blog and does “not plan to comment on this speculation.”

The Collegian story was picked by the DailyKos, Safeguard Old State, and UWire. It should be interesting to see if our magical President will be heading up to the Hill in the near future. OS will be here with the story as it develops.

Work for This Man?
