Spellings: Rhee has "fire in the belly"
My colleague Nick Anderson reports that former education secretary Margaret Spellings touted Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee at a meeting of The Post's editorial board Monday.
Spellings predicted that Rhee would continue her work in the District if Mayor Adrian M. Fenty wins another four-year term later this year.
"I think she's fearless and has the fire in the belly," Spellings said. "If he's re-elected, I think she's here to stay and coming on."
Spellings is a long-time Rhee booster who supported her appointment as chancellor while in the Bush cabinet. Last year, Fenty chose a Spellings lieutenant, former assistant secretary of education Kerri Briggs, to become D.C. State Superintendent of Education.
