Nussle as RNC chair?

Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post blogs that former Iowa Congressman/2006 Iowa GOP gubernatorial candidate/Bush budget director Jim Nussle is one of the names being mentioned as a possible candidate to chair the Republican National Committee.

Nussle has been budget director for over a year.  Nussle spoke with me in June. telling me he now understands why former OMB chiefs have a hard time finding jobs.  "You spend most of your time around here being the bad cop…trying to stop bad things from happening, preventing people from wasting money or spending money," Nussle said.  During our conversation, Nussle laughed when I asked him if he was going to write a book about his White House experiences.
