Jon Corzine may not be a serious candidate for U.S. Secretary of the Treasury — few people missed the sign last Friday when the Governor was not part on an Obama economic policy meeting and news conference in Chicago — but his incoming Chief of Staff may be. Lisa Jackson, the state Commissioner of Environmental Protection who is about to move to the front office, is short-listed for U.S. Environmental Protection Agnecy administrator in Barack Obama’s administration, according to an Associated Press report of possible cabinet picks.
Former Gov. Thomas Kean’s name comes up again as an Obama cabinet pick — the AP lists him as a candidate for U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security. Last week, Politico said Kean, who served as Governor from 1982 to 1990, was a possible candidate for U.S. Secretary of Education.
