I had speculated about this before the Richardson and the Reprican nominations.
Gary Locke is a much better choice for this than he was for governor. The guy has leadership skills only eclipsed by those of our current governor ... he really is a technocrat.
That said, Gary is quite smart and more than a bit of a technogeek. His knowledge of Chinese may serve us well in dealing with the corporatist Communist colossal party .. that is the CCCP government of China.
Unlike the previous choices, finally, Locke reminds me a lot of the nodrama Obama crew. He gets things done in a quiet and effective way .. as long as no one expects him to be public ;eader.
And, and ... Mona!!!!!
Imagine THAT TEAM ... Mona and Michelle! Awesome! They could sell drivers licenses in Saudi Arabia and hamantoshin in Iran!
A meeting of that one's cabinet spouses might outshine the cabinet itself. Steve Chu's wife is a physicist, Secty Clinton's hubbi is a former president, VP Biden's SO is a pretty significant in education, etc etc.
