Like having election jitters all over again

Remember how hard it was to sleep on November 3rd? We do. And now, with the delayed appointment for the Secretary of the Department of the Interior Cabinet position, we're twitchy all over again.
Still unclear is whom Obama will tap for interior secretary.

Officials close to the transition said support for John Berry, the director of the National Zoo and a former assistant secretary at the Interior Department, was growing. But these officials also said Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva and California Rep. Mike Thompson were still in the running. (AP)
We can't take it any more and we want Grijalva! We're not alone. PEER got 106 green groups together to endorse Grijalva. Newspapers are endorsing him. The Huffington Post sang high praises.

Can't you just feel the love for this guy? Hopefully Mr. Obama can too. 'Cause this time around, this position is as critical as commander in chief for those of us who care about imperiled species. After too many years of Dirk Kempthorne, we're really ready for a change.

There is a lengthy discussion here and 130 groups support Grijalva:
