    WASHINGTON -- One of President Barack Obama's top advisers suggested to a Colorado Democrat that he forgo a primary challenge to Sen. Michael Bennet and instead apply for one of three international development jobs.

    The disclosure came just days after the White House admitted orchestrating a job offer in the Pennsylvania Senate race with the similar goal of avoiding a messy or divisive Democratic primary.

    This type of transparency for the President and his Administration may be a little more than what he had in mind. :eek:

    I don't get the big deal about trying to protect Bennet...he was head of Denver Public Schools, and was only a recent appointee by Governor Ritter to take the seat of Ken Salazar who left to head the Interior Dept. Not only that, his appointment was sort of a puzzlement anyway.
