President Barack Obama will name Charlotte, N.C., Mayor Anthony Foxx as his next Secretary of the Department of Transportation, sources familiar with the administration’s planning told The Huffington Post. The decision is expected to come this week.


Mr. Foxx graduated just before me in 1993 from the distinguished Davidson college.

He was student body president while I was rising IFC president so we were both becoming leaders in the community.

Unfortunately my role included getting hammered and playing Foosball on a Tuesday night while his was apparently trying to move up in the world.

I could have been a cabinet member if I wanted.

Not from Charlotte.

Besides getting elected mayor, and graduating from Davidson, what exactly qualifies him for the new position?

Exactly! I've got the same credentials he has.

Besides the mayor thing.

He has a better wiki page than me though.

Yeah I don't know what really qualifies him for the position either, but he won't be the first person to hold this position without any real credentials to do so. Elizabeth Dole was also the Secretary of Transportation.

I'm sure Foxx got this position because of who he knows rather than what he knows.

I'm interested to see who becomes the Mayor of Charlotte now. I'm hoping we don't get an extreme right or left wing mayor. McCory did well here by being fairly moderate.

The success and smooth running of the DNC had something to do with it I bet.

Yep it's all the medias fault. I hated Perdue and didn't vote for her but unlike your ilk you can only defend your party.

I've praised him for the Met Life deal....everything else though has been less than what a moderate would do

"Everything else" = what exactly?

Sounds like you had this pretty nailed down on what's upset you. Check your email.

Did Charlotte "write off" any DNC debts?
