    Chet Edwards For Obama Cabinet?

    I just heard a report on our local news out of Waco that Chet Edwards(D-TX) is rumored to be in the running for a cabinet post. He had mentioned this when he was vetted for the VP position as well.

    For my part, as a Conservitive and a resident of Central TX I can say without reservation that would be a good move. He's a long time Congresscritter and is well respected in Washington as well as here in TX. He saved the Waco Veterans Hospital as well as fighting to save a number of military aviation projects that kept alot of jobs at L-3, a major employer. He's honest, and he gets a "B" from the NRA (Ron Paul is an A- for reference). Obama would be lucky to have him.

    It is possible. He was an early supporter of Obama in the primaries.

    My guess is that whole "Uniteing" game he's running. One vote does not necessarilly make a person. Chet Edwards is as solid as they come.

    He already went through that with Biden and Rahm Emanuel. Most Democrats supported it. Some might say they were duped, but it is what it is.

    And truthfully the Iraq issue is second to the economy now.
