The look of a candidate

Oregon's recently replaced interim U.S. attorney, Dwight Holton, gets a big splash in this morning's Politico Playbook, an e-mail newsletter generally regarded as a must-read for political scientists nationwide:

Holton's obviously got ambitions for high office. Too bad he's not interested in the Multnomah County district attorney job, which could use him. Whatever he runs for, he'll need votes from outside the county, as he's shown his displeasure with "medical" marijuana -- a position that doesn't play well in Portlandia.

Dwight is as proactive a US Attorney as I can remember in Oregon. He reached out to all areas of the state and was proactive on many issues.

Bright, personable, outgoing, a quick study on issues and a terrific recall of names. No handler needed.

We'd be lucky to have him as Attorney General for Oregon.

His best buddy already has that job.
