According to WWJ Former Governor Jennifer Granholm could be headed to the White House.
WWJ’s Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick said there are rumors surrounding a possible appointment of Jennifer Granholm.
“We’ve seen this movie before, the only question is whether it will have a different ending. Granholm, the state’s former governor, has been on the list before for joining the Obama administration. The popular wisdom is that if indeed this is going to happen, and we have no idea if it will, but the Energy Secretary position will be open and she was up for that before, but she didn’t get it,” Skubick said.
Some published reports say if Attorney General Eric Holder steps down, Granholm may be considered for that position. Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson has already announced she’s leaving soon, and Granholm could be considered for that position as well.
“There are two schools of thought. If they wanted her in the administration, she already would have been there, that’s one school of thought. The other school is ‘Look, she’s been doing other stuff, she’s available, she’s looking for work, why not pick her?’” Skubick said.
Granholm most recently said she would be leaving her job at Current TV, where she has hosted “The War Room,” a public affairs program, for the past year. She said she plans to go back to “teaching, speaking and other things.”
