Speculation Continues on Genachowski Replacement
Kornbluh, Strickling & Wheeler Still Top Candidates
by Karl Bode 04:13PM Wednesday Mar 13 2013
Speculation has been heated over the last month as to who'll replace Julius Genachowski as the new FCC boss, even though he has yet to officially announce his departure. Washington speculation has previously tagged Tom Wheeler, a former cable industry and wireless industry lobbyist, as the most likely candidate. The Washington Post this week stated that some within the FCC are nervous about Wheeler's lobbying ties (or they're worried about the political appearance of his lobbying ties), but the paper confirmed that he, Obama staffer Karen Kornbluh, and NTIA boss Lawrence Strickling are indeed the top three candidates for the job. Once again absent from speculation is Susan Crawford, who has seen grass roots support for her criticism of the industry's competitive and price failures.

*yawn*

Obama staffer = guaranteed tool, therefore the most likely pick. Watch for the retirement & switch to take place when other major events have the media preoccupied.
