I like Brian Schweizer. Didn't the Udalls just get elected senators in their respective states? Would that have a bearing on selection?

Yes, both Udalls were just elected senator, Mark from Colorado and his cousin from New Mexico. I have never heard any scuttlebut that Mark was interested in Secy of the Interior, but then I'm not high up in the political circles here.

Right, right--and we don't need any more senators in the cabinet. OK, let's take 'em off the list.

I hope we get a person that realizes this land belong to all of us and not just to the corporations that cut or mine the resources. We need to spend money on our parks, reserves and wilderness areas. They have been neglected and/or abused by the Republican greed is good exploiters for far too long.

LOL, good point. OK, I'll keep Knowles on my list of "maybes." But he's also on my list of "I sure hope nots."

The only think I can remember about the SOI job is that, at least when James Watt was the SOI, that HE was firmly in charge after Reagan was shot.
