Tony Snow Is “Awaiting A Clearance From Doctors” As He Considers W.H. Job

By Brian 

Fox News commentator/host Tony Snow is still “in negotiations for the job of White House press secretary,” Friday’s New York Times says.

“Republicans said [Joshua] Bolten has been focused on finding a new White House press secretary with good contacts in the Washington news media and a deep understanding of how they work.”

And Snow definitely fits that description. But:

“Associates of Mr. Snow, 50, said he has been weighing whether he and his family are up for the rigors of such a demanding job. Mr. Snow had surgery for colon cancer last year and is awaiting an clearance from doctors before making a deal, according to people with knowledge of his deliberations who spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to upset private discussions at a sensitive time.”
