I called it!

One of many sources reporting on the next Commerce Secretary nominee:

After two withdrawn nominations to head the Commerce Dept., President Obama appears poised to take a third swing, naming former Washington Governor Gary Locke, who has a reputation as a wonkish, bland straight-shooter.

And this was me, a whole three weeks ago:

I don't really see how Gregg is such a great selection for Commerce Secretary -- what about Gary Locke? -- but the idea that the GOP was going to give up their party-line filibuster so easily was never in the cards.

And again on February 12:

Rather than detouring the careers of future Senators such as Kathleen Sebelius, I'd suggest that we use talented Democrats who are not in elected office right now [er, five other people, then]...retired Washington Governor (and one-time wave of the future) Gary Locke...

What now?
