Monday, November 12, 2012


Are the Rhode Island political dominos about to go crashing down?

U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) is getting mentioned on the short list for two positions in the Obama Administration. The newly re-elected President is expected to revamp his second-term administration. The appontment of Reed would set off a series of events affecing Rhode Island's political landscape for years.

Reed, the father of a young daughter might be motivated to take on a new challange and create a post-governmental career that draws major board appointment and a top level salary. Former Secretaries of Defense are in high demand and their salaries are robust.

A vacant Reed seat would be filled by a special election.

Watch how the political dominos would fall.
