The local U.S. Attorney saga may be getting freakier. It originally seemed a good bet that Mary Beth Buchanan's successor would have been sworn in before Bush Jr.'s Inauguration Day flight had touched down. So why is Pittsburgh's the last vacancy in the state without a nominee? Did Cliff Levine change his mind (again)? Did the Casey-Specter tussle unravel something in Pittsburgh? Did a background investigation take an unexpected turn? Is Pres. Obama waiting to see whether the Chong-Hunter is still available after November? If the President doesn't make a move within a week, the lines are going back up at the Propositions Board (far right column).
