    I mean, if there's actual noise from the admin, I'm interested to hear it, but Obama is the kind of guy who rewards loyalty and, for want of a better word, brotherhood, and, other than the requisite token GOP cabinet appointment, will probably not appoint someone who he considers to have stabbed him in the back, and having fought with Congress for four years, any Democrat who opposes a Democratic Congress is stabbing him in the back.

    (By the way, Ray LaHood was this round's token GOP cabinet appointment; he has actually been a great Transportation secretary and his work on HSR has been about the best we can expect in current conditions.)
