All external candidates. Hooray.

Given some recent pro forma searches for UW admins, this is a small ray of hope.

And now all eyes are on the chimney at Bascom.

Red smoke- we have a new chancellor.
White smoke- we have heat.

I lean towards Rebecca Blank. A little googling makes me think she's got the right priorities, she's accustomed to dealing with clueless politicians, and most of UW's current problems are about money.

Plus her selection might shut up all the ditto-heads yammering on about how we need a Chancellor with 'business experience.'

Which would be a blessed relief.
