Team of hopefuls*

The Los Angeles Times looks at the possible successors to Rep. Xavier Becerra, who might be leaving office to become U.S. Trade Representative under President Barack Obama. As predicted, LA Councilman Eric Garcetti is on the list, along with state Sen. Gil Cedillo and LA County Supervisor Gloria Molina.

*UPDATED: Becerra is said to be meeting with Obama today in Chicago. Not sure if this is a second meeting between the two about the job (Politico reported that the two were set to meet yesterday in Chicago), but it looks to me like the deal is being sealed.
