The 30-day circus known as the legislative session has come to town and now that we’ve had a few days under our belts, I’ll make a couple predictions about what to expect to come out of the clown car.

First, I think the anticipated confirmation hearing of Hanna Skandera will create plenty of sound and fury but in the end, it may signify nothing.

Skandera came to New Mexico three years ago after working for former U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings and former Gov. Jeb Bush, as deputy commissioner for Florida’s Department of Education. In that time, Skandera has been the acting secretary of the Public Education Department.
