Ron Kirk's Doing Just Fine, Thanks

The Senate Committee on Finance doesn't have Ron Kirk's confirmation hearing penciled in on the schedule; so, for now, Bush appointee Peter F. Allgeier is the acting U.S. Trade Representative, the position to which then-President-elect Barack Obama appointed Kirk last month. But the former Dallas mayor took at least one baby step toward the position today by releasing his financial disclosure forms, which the Associated Press has so helpfully sifted through. Some highlights?

Kirk made more than $1 million last year from his law firm partnership and corporate board positions ... Vinson & Elkins will pay him a bonus of $150,000 and other benefits, when he resigns, the disclosure form said. ... Kirk also reported assets valued between $1.9 million and $4.6 million.

I officially declare my candidacy for mayor of Dallas.
