Claude Allen, We Hardly Knew You

I'm not sure it really matters who's in the DPC during anyone's second term, but for a year now I've been wondering idly just who it was who had replaced Margaret Spellings in that spot.

And now -- just as he's leaving -- I find out. It's Claude Allen, apparently the highest-ranking African American official in the White House, as well as a past target of liberal groups for his conservative views. For the past year, he's apparently been filling in on education issues, whatever that means. And he's just quit.

This picture from USAT shows Allen briefing the President on his way to or from a meeting with the CBC last year.
