Jim Did Not Ruin Ron Kirk's Night

Love this picture of Ron Kirk taken last night at the Obama victory shindig at Gilley's on 1135 S. Lamar Street, not the one in Chicago. Very handsome. Almost ... mayoral. Cabinet material, at least. --Robert Wilonsky

Update: Just spoke with Kirk's assistant at Vinson & Elkins, where he's currently in a meeting with a client. But he will phone back as soon as he's free to offer his thoughts on last night's Obama victory. But he did have this to say to KERA-90.1 last night: "I think you've had the American people say, 'Enough. Let's sit down, work together, forget what color we are and work to solve these big problems.'"

Updatex2: At 4 this afternoon, I had a lengthy chat with Ron Kirk about the last 24 hours -- and whether or not he'll play any future role in a Barack Obama administration. That interview will appear on Unfair Park tomorrow.
