During the mind-bending 2010 Vermont gubernatorial primary, Democrats cried in their beer morning, noon, and night. Why? Our very deep bench had emptied onto the field simultaneously, making it all but certain that our most gifted players would defeat, injure or even kill one another in mortal combat. But not to worry. Suddenly they’re all on the same team. Today’s stand-out Cabinet addition: former Secretary of State Deb Markowitz, who’ll take over at Natural Resources. A brilliant move. And the mark of a Governor-elect very secure in his own skin. VDB likes.
