When it rains in Snows

CNN says Tony Snow is likely to get the Press Secretary job.
Sources close to the White House said Monday that Fox anchor Tony Snow is likely to accept the job as White House press secretary, succeeding Scott McClellan.

The sources said they expect him to announce his decision within the next few days.
This is perhaps a mix of wishful thinking and expectation, but it doesn't seem entirely unreasonable that by appointing someone who has written so many thousands of columns over the years and made so many remarks on TV and on his radio show, the White House is risking a blogosphere-led insurgency against Snow. I wouldn't be surprised if a controversial column or two pops up once Snow is appointed, forcing the administration to defend him before he even gets moved into his office.
