Gov Won't Make Promise
Every time the governor ventures out on the stump for Barack Obama, she returns to heightened speculation that if he's elected, she may venture out for good. Given a chance to say she would not take a post in a new Obama administration and put an end to the endless speculating, Gov. Jennifer Granholm demurred. The question was straightforward, "Will you promise you won't take a job if offered?" The answer was not so straightforward. "I want to be governor when we have a president that's focused on our issue," she warmed up the fog machine. Ah, that was an answer but not to the question asked. "I can't get you to say anything other than that?" "I want to be governor when we have a president that's focused on our issues," she stayed on message while beginning to smile every so slightly as she picked up the pace to the waiting SUV. "You could be governor for a year and then you could leave?" Now instead of the "I want to be governor" malarkey, the governor gets in the SUV, grabs a back seat and her security guy closes the door with her laughing inside. But not the end of the speculation…not by a long shot.
