Here's the latest mention that James Lee Witt, the country boy from Wildcat Hollow, Ark. who did such a good job as Bill Clinton's FEMA director, could be joining the Obama administration, at least for a time, to help fix the mess Bush made. But hasn't Witt been lobbying, more or less? And isn't there some potential controversy from his post-Katrina work? Yes, but ... 

This scenario has Witt followed after his consultancy by a colleague from his James Lee Witt Associates, Mark Merritt.
