Even though I’m a Michigander and I voted for Jennifer Granholm, twice, I’ve mixed feelings about her being part of President-elect Obama (I love writing that, and I love saying it) financial advisory committee or whatever it is. Of course, being the gov. of Michigan, the auto-making state, it seems almost obligatory for her to be there so that she can beg for assistance for the auto companies, but her performance as gov. has been wanting, in my opinion. i could never really escape the feeling that she was governing in a manner that would eventually get her a position in the Democratic White House Administration. And in the sense, she’s been successful. NPR reported on Friday that she is being consider for Energy Sec. I’m not saying she’s not qualified, and that she won’t do a good job. I just can’t help thinking that her ambition for other things made her a less than committed gov. She simply didn’t fight as hard as she could at times. Of course, I lay some blame at the feet of the Rep.-controlled state congress, but still.
