Saenz not going to DC

~
Good catch by Kevin on the news that the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's Office of Counsel Thomas Saenz, the man most responsible for overturning Prop 187, is not going to DC after all.

Even among Democrats, it would probably be hard to confirm a guy who has spent so much time battling for undocumented residents, when so many nominees are foiled simply for hiring them. There are simply too many stories like these lurking in Saenz's past.

The humdrum quality of meetings the Mayor took in DC this past week weren't very reassuring for his own future, either. The Mayor may be viewed as damaged goods because he has largely failed to bring measurable progress to the nation's most progressive city.
