24-Hour Dorman: Mr. Secretary

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Last Summer, at the Democratic National Convention, former Gov. Tom
Vilsack told a small group of journos that he was still seeking a
calling 18 months after leaving office. Sure, he had about a
half-dozen jobs. He lectured at Harvard this fall and is still
practicing law while advising Iowa State and others on biofuels. He's
been writing on the merits of biotech crops. He co-chaired a state
health coverage task force, where he pushed an effort to cover to
expand state coverage to the children of illegal immigrants. Busy. He
had just returned from a trip to Africa with Bill Clinton, and envied
the former president's foundation work. "I need to figure out how to
do that (focus his talents). I haven't figured that out," Vilsack said
at the time.
