Arne Duncan carries nearly 40% of our Insiders' votes, soaring high above even his closest competition - Klein, Sebelius, Canada, and Darling-Hammond. But which one of these contenders will dare to pluck his wings? It might be Klein, given that our Insiders increased their support for him today, changing his percentage from 6.3% to 9.8%. Caroline Kennedy, Tim Kaine, Michael Lomax, Hugh Price, Tom Vilsack, Ray Mabus, and, yes, Oprah Winfrey, are all tied at 2%.
With the holiday lull, we don't expect to see many changes, but next week could bring some surprises - maybe even announcements. We will wait with bated breath here at Fordham.?? Enjoy the holiday - and Happy Thanksgiving!
