Becerra says no to being US Trade Rep
Xavier Becerra has turned down Barack Obama's offer to be the next US Trade Representative. Good for him. I was opposed to the idea, because I think he will do more good in the House, and I think he has a very bright future in the House. Also, I like having him as my Representative. So this is a bit of good news. I'm sure Becerra would have done a fine job as USTR, but I'm sure whoever Obama eventually picks will do a fine job, as well.
