Kaine Talks About 2010 Job Prospects
Some people in Richmond are already speculating about what Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D), who just passed the midpoint of his term, plans to do when he leaves office in 2010. One option is future president of a college or university, including either the University of Virginia or Virginia Commonwealth University.
In an interview with Washington Post reporters and editors Wednesday night, Kaine wouldn't discuss what his future options are, but said he really enjoyed the "community building aspect" of being Richmond mayor and governor.
"I'm likely to do something that has a community building component," said Kaine, who said he could be interested in a job with non profit organization.
Even though he has pledged to serve his full term, Kaine could be a cabinet secretary in a Democratic administration, particularly if Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is elected.
When asked if he would consider such a job, Kaine said "it would be impossible" because he won't be leaving the governor's mansion until January 2010, a full year after the new president is sworn in.
But if Obama still has a job open in 2010, Kaine said "it would be entirely possible" that he would consider moving to Washington.
