So President-elect Barack Obama has named just about every member of his incoming cabinet, with a glaring exception being the new FCC chairman.
The Washington Post said today that person appears to be Julius Genachowski. Genachowski is serving on Obama’s tech policy transition team alongside former FCC chief of staff Blair Levin. And here’s what we don’t understand. Genachowski is a venture capitalist. Levin served as FCC chief of staff.
Is there something about Genachowski’s qualifications we’re not seeing? Because it seems odd to overlook Levin in favor of Genachowski, particularly when Levin’s name has long been in the running as Kevin Martin’s successor.
