Akshay with the scoop! Gary Locke will probably be appointed to head the Commerce Department. He’ll be the second Washingtonian appointed to the Obama administration, after Seattle police chief Gil Kerlikowske got the Drug Czar spot.

Locke was the first Chinese-American governor in U.S. history and always seemed like a good guy to me. Though I remember he gave a pretty weak rebuttal to one of Bush’s early State of the Unions. Still, lets just hope that Locke sails through the nomination.

Yeah…I remember that Chris Matthews completely belittled and humiliated Locke after his TV appearance after a state of the union rebuttal. I’ll bet is will appear on tonight’s Hardball.
