Saw the posting for SJL's follow up meeting for Height's crime and remembered a brief mention of her possibly going to the State Department working for Hillary. Did a quick search on HAIF with no mention but found numerous mentions 2 weeks old on the web. Does anyone know if this is going to happen?

Here's one post:

IS SHEILA JACKSON LEE MOVING TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT?

WHO SHOULD REPLACE HER IN THE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT?

Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Houston) will leave her post in Congress to work in the U.S. State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, sources tell Capitol Annex.

Jackson Lee was among Clinton

I've always had a jaded opinion of Ms. Lee because she always seemed to be looking for a camera to step in front of. This was most evident during the Rita/Ike evacuation dances.

The one time that I did meet to her face to face was much different. It was like meeting a different person altogether. I was at a state democratic convention, several years ago up in Ft. Worth, standing in front of the convention center waiting for a person from my delegation to show up. An old clunker car pulled up to the curb and out stepped SJL from the passenger side. She walked up to me, introduced herself and after a few brief pleasantries asked, "Is there another entrance to the auditorium? I'm supposed to speak these evening, and was hoping I could get on inside without having to make too many stops." I directed her to an entrance that I assumed was used for that purpose. She thanked me and walked off, unescorted into the hall.

I was impressed by her low key demeanor and casualness. Later on, as I heard her speaking on stage, it seamed like a different person altogether.

Funny! Even Brian Williams (NBC) mentioned that we could expect SJL to get into a shot as the prez assended. Sure enough, she got up in there, as he predicted.

I've spoken with her briefly at fundraisers, etc. and found her to be very personable.
