Ex-Bushie and Fordham Foundation VP Michael Petrilli has made me feel a little bit better about Arizona Sen. John McCain’s fast-track pace to the Republican nomination.
To be sure, I’m not worried about a McCain nomination because of his politics, but from a pure education-blogging perspective. As Petrilli notes in his latest article for the National Review, McCain has “zero interest in education,” which will make the jobs of edubloggers (and ED in ’08) that much more difficult.
However, Petrilli notes that perhaps McCain will delegate the job of education policy to an education secretary who actually has a flair and passion for talking about curriculum, students, and teachers. Mike Huckabee, anyone?
