Obama signalling choice for EPA Administrator?

In today's NYTimes, there's an article about Daschle and HRC as Secretaries for Obama. Further into the article is this:

On other fronts, the Obama transition team on Wednesday named seven policy working groups that will help to transform campaign promises to specific initiatives. Among the group leaders will be a... former director of the Environmental Protection Agency, Carol M. Browner, for energy and the environment. All four of those served in the Clinton administration. (By HELENE COOPER and PETER BAKER)

Does anyone here speak Washington-speak? Is this Obama signalling his intention to appoint Carol Browner as the next EPA Administrator? I'm still hoping that Dan Esty gets it.

I cringed when I saw that comment. Disagreeing on policy is one thing, but that was unbelievably personal.

Furthermore, Dan Esty's normal approach is a business one. Generally speaking, I think it makes a lot of sense.

You my have cringed but at least an individual had the guts to write what they felt. There is no way they could have signed it because of the backlash against them, people will go to a auto race to see the crash but they will never admit that is the reason they bought the ticket. Get a grip and face reality, allow open comments.
