in case you didn't know Boccieri & Kucinich were THE votes that allowed Obamacare to pass (Driehaus was in the bag early on) :gaah: The Politico Web site is reporting that President Obama has instructed his staff to find a place in the administration for U.S. Rep. John Boccieri of Alliance. Boccieri, a native of Youngstown who represented the Mahoning Valley in the Ohio Senate before his election two years ago to Congress from the Canton area, was defeated last month by Republican Jim Renacci. "Shortly after the Nov. 2 midterm debacle," Politico reports, "Obama told his senior aides to think about job openings for a handful of ousted members of Congress who were close to him -- people he believes are competent and capable of providing service to the administration -- especially Reps. Tom Perriello of Virginia and John Boccieri and Steve Driehaus of Ohio." The story also suggests Gov. Ted Strickland is also a candidate for a job, although not in the Cabinet.
