WASHINGTON — First off, the persistent rumor that Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine (D) might get the Attorney General job in the Obama administration simply isn’t worth much.
That’s what his press secretary Gordon Hickey told on Monday.
“He will not leave his job for any cabinet appointment in the Obama Administration,” Hickey said. “He’s serving until January of 2010.”
Other names being mentioned in the media and by law enforcement  sources include: Eric Holder, a former U.S. Attorney and deputy Attorney General under Clinton; Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano; Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, a former assistant U.S. Attorney; and Rep. Arthur Davis (D-Ala.). There is also talk that Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who is on  President-elect Obama’s economic transition team,   could be a dark horse candidate.
Meanwhile, it looks like FBI director Robert Mueller III plans to serve out his 10-year term, which expires in 2011, according to reliable sources.
“He’s told people he has no intention of leaving” until his term is up, said one well placed source.
Sources said Mueller had talked about stepping down a little while back because his wife was ill.
But they say she’s doing much better now, and the stoic director wants to stick around.
