    but he'll be out of office in a few months, so I wasn't really counting him.

    •  Schweitzer's best path forward (3+ / 0-)

      Should he start running for president now? Should he go into the private sector to shore up his business credk Or should Obama give him a sweet cabinet position like Secretary of Agriculture? Or more interestingly would be if he were appointed as something like Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Schweitzer speaks Arabic fluently and worked in Saudi Arabia and Libya when he was younger. That'd really set him up nicely on the foreign policy front if Hillary opts not to run after all.

        Would be better as Sec. of Energy

        •  His background is in agriculture though (0+ / 0-)

          I don't necessarily see being a governor of an energy producing state to be qualified to be secretary of energy by default.

          •  True (0+ / 0-)

            But he's also one of the brightest Dem. minds on energy policy. I'm not quite sure where the video is, but he gave a highly touted interview in 2008 just before the convention on energy issues.
