Ray LaHood out. Praises stimulus package, FAA reauth, safety, CAFE. Says best job he ever had.

Another Cabinet member is on the way out. Does Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood plan to envy the Chinese government from the private sector? He tells the Associated Press he has no “specific plans” and just wants to “go out while they’re applauding.”

@raylahood told @ap he will not run for office in home state of Illinois. “You should go out while they’re applauding.”

Thanks for the giggles, Ray!

I hope Ray LaHood gets a nice going-away present, like a horse and buggy like he wants us all to drive.

As we speak, The White House is looking through its binders of old white guys to find Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s replacement

Oh boy:

Antonio Villagaigrosa is going to want to stick close to his phone this week. LaHood is out!
