Arne Duncan isn't just our newest Secretary of Education -- he might be the best basketball player in the history of high-level federal government. Certainly among Cabinet-level appointees.
Henry linked to this must-read about Duncan's hoops past. And H.A. coined an amazing little line: "Basketball is the new golf."
As a bonus, Duncan is a huge proponent -- like Obama -- of infusing billions of dollars into early-early-childhood education, which could radically improve our country's future.
