Clyburn’s office said he is flattered that some of his Congressional Black Caucus colleagues put forward his name for consideration for a Cabinet post, but said he is focused on House business.

“What the members are saying is it would be nice to have a colleague from the House in the cabinet after Secretary Solis’ departure,” Brathwaite said. “If there’s going to be a concerted effort to do big things in Congress and big things as an executive and legislative branch working together, obviously having people who know and understand the institution would be to the president’s advantage.”
