Felipe Calderón named José Ángel Córdova the secretary of education, replacing Alonso Lujambio, who is suffering from cancer. Córdova, who earned widespread plaudits as health secretary, lost out on the PAN's gubernatorial nomination in Guanajuato several weeks ago (knowing the region, presumably his sanity, pragmatism, and competence constituted the electoral albatross around Córdova's neck), and had been rumored as the PRI's candidate for the post. This takes him out of the running for that post, and keeps one of the PAN's more likeable high profile panistas in the fold.
