He's number 3. Will he try even harder?

I vaguely remember a story from my college days about a dorm room which, by pure coincidence, was vacated mid-year by two different people during the same academic year. With typically tasteless and childish college humor, the third resident was told he (or she, I forget which) was moving into the "cursed room".

Perhaps that's how former Governor Gary Locke, Democrat of Washington, will feel, if the reports are true that he is President Obama's third choice to be secretary of commerce.

Locke has impeccable Democratic Party credentials, making him a more conventional choice for that job than the Republican senator who backed out.
