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.

I'd like to find out where this bizarro McCrory in Raleigh came from

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
