A Teacher In The Cabinet: Another Richardson Gimmick

By Alexander Russo — October 12, 2007 1 min read

USA Today’s political blog notes via Greg Toppo that, in another shameless ploy to appeal to as many folks as possible without saying very much, Bill Richardson on Thursday pledged that his EdSec would be.... a teacher (here). Historians will note that EdSec Riley put a teacher nominally in charge of teaching-related issues during his two terms. I’m not sure it made much difference, though it probably made lots of folks feel warm inside.
