Vilsack Named Sec. of Agriculture

The AP reports that Tom Vilsack has been named Sec. of Agriculture in the Obama Administration.

My first thought when hearing this was that Charles Grassley just took a sigh of relief. I don't see anyway Vilsack can turn around and for Senate against Grassley in 2010. Mike Johanns served almsot 3 years as Sec. of Agriculture before announcing his run for Senate in Nebraska in September of 2007. Vilsack would serve 8-12 months before having to announce his run and if he did that, I think there'd be some bad press coming his way for backing out of his committment.

With that said, Sec. of Agriculture isn't a bad gig for Vilsack for the next few years.
