Editor's note: So far nothing official has emerged regarding possible Administrator replacements for (likely) outgoing Administrator Mike Griffin - other than the usual rumors, gossip, and chatter (which I have tried to avoid promoting on NASA Watch.).

(Al Gore as "Climate Czar"). One would think that NASA's Earth Science work would become much more important than it has been for the past 8 years.
