We heard last week that some Alaskans — including some here in Juneau — are asking Mark Begich to launch a write-in campaign for U.S. Senate.
We’d like them to think bigger. We’d like him to be Secretary of the Interior.
Now, we know that’s out of our hands to a large extent. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump pick their cabinet members. Interior Secretary isn’t an elected position, but we know Begich can make sure he’s available and prepared for the job.
If you think about it, it’s a perfect job for him, and it’d be good for Alaska.
