Hillary Helps Manny?

In the big game of Cabinet dominoes underway in DC/Chi, the now-deemed-likely prospect that Hillary Clinton will be named Secretary of State may boost Manny Diaz’s chances of getting a Cabinet post.

Choosing Clinton means that Bill Richardson– an hispanic- won’t be tapped for State,increasing the pressure on Pres-Elect Obama to pick an Hispanic for another Cabinet slot.  Richardson still gets mention as a possible Interior Secy (or Amb to China?), and there are other nombres being floated for other Cabinet and top staff positions.

The Washington Post’s Al Kamen suggests HUD is likely to be headed by an Hispanic, with Diaz a possibility: “At least four Latino candidates are said to be under consideration to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development: Miami Mayor Manny Diaz;Adolfo Carrion Jr., a longtime New York pol, and Bronx borough president; Saul Ramirez Jr., a former deputy HUD secretary; and Nelson A. Diaz, who has been a judge and a HUD general counsel.”
