Administrator Short List Evaporates

Editor’s note:Reliable sources say that none of the names that have been circulating on Capitol Hill (and within NASA and the aerospace industry) are currently under consideration for NASA Administrator by the White House. Either the folks on this “list” took themselves out of consideration or they were never being considered in the first place. Given Sean O’Keefe’s planned departure in February, and the Bush Administration’s penchant for filling positions quickly, and the release of a new budget in a few weeks, one can expect that something will emerge rather soon. Given another habit, i.e. that this White House keeps things under wraps until they chose the right moment, the identity of their choice will likely emerge only a short time before an official announcement.
