QUOTE OF THE DAY....From Tim Fernholz, on Bill Richardson's nomination as Secretary of Commerce:

For a man who once broke the world record for number of hands shook in eight hours, it seems like he's now gunning for number of cabinet posts held in one lifetime.

Hmmm. Who does hold the record for number of cabinet-level posts held? This will be Richardson's third. Elliot Richardson held four. No other serial cabinet members come immediately to mind. Anyone know?
