Obama's Cabinet Picks: Energy Secretary

Obama's Cabinet Energy SecretaryTime to scratch a name off your Energy Secretary candidate list? ABC's Jake Tapper and Martha Raddatz are reporting that retired Marine General James L. Jones has emerged as the leading candidate to serve as the National Security Adviser for President-elect Obama.

The former head of NATO and U.S. forces in Europe, Jones is currently president and CEO of the Institute for 21st Century Energy. A move to the NSA could provide synergies with the work done at the ITCE; where energy policy is viewed as integral to national security.

I was at this conference! A great address by a truly great leader who is a truly terrible public speaker.

Energy secretary or national security advisor?

Jones is reportedly being tabbed for the NSA, though his name had been mentioned in the press as a candidate for Sec. of Energy.

Jones appears to have very limited insight into the energy problems we face.

The most intelligent proponent of nuclear power in Washington I know of is Senator Larry Craig. I can think of no better Energy Secretary who could kill many birds with one stone, not the least of which is mending the political divide.
