Senator Sean O'Keefe?

Editor's note: There is a rumor going around NASA about Sean O'Keefe's next job i.e. that he is going to run for the U.S. Senate. As you may recall, O'Keefe is currently chancellor of LSU. I asked him today to comment on this rumor. He replied "I was asked that question at a faculty meeting recently. My response was to remind folks that William Tecumseh Sherman was the first President of LSU. His famous refrain when asked if he'd run for President of the U.S. was "if nominated I will not run, and if elected, I will not serve." My refusal to ever be a candidate would make Sherman's sound like he was equivocating! Translate - I'd rather be dead in a ditch than ever be a candidate for public office."
