Tauscher to State
By Al Kamen
Word is that Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-Calif.), chair of the House Armed Services Committee's subcommittee on strategic forces and a staunch superdelegate for presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, is in line for a top post at the State Department, most likely for the undersecretary for arms control and nonproliferation slot.
It had been widely reported that highly regarded arms control guru Robert Einhorn, who had been assistant secretary for arms control in the Clinton administration, was penciled in to move up to that post, but we're hearing he has turned it down for personal reasons. And Secretary of State Clinton did, after all, win the California primary.
Einhorn will likely be named to a senior adviser position on nonproliferation matters.
