But once again we have a young President and a relatively young Mayor who doesn't appear to desire to retire from politics, and they're both Democrats. Our Mayor is a shining star in national Democratic politics, spends more time there anyway than in LA doing his Mayoring and is well known to the DC glitteratti.
So - will Barack Obama offer a position to Antonio Villaraigosa? Uh, well, uh, don't count on it. However I would not be surprised to see LA based Obama early adopters such as Eric Garcetti, Laura Chick or Xavier Becerra as having a shot to go to DC.
What say you?
