New President means new 4 new US Attorneys in Texas

With a new president about to assume power, Texas will soon see four new US Attorneys as Bush's appointments are replaced by Obama's in the early days of his tenure. The Dallas News has a story describing the jockeying among four possible candidates for US Attorney in the Northern District:
Three – Larry Jarrett, Terri Moore and Mike Snipes – are former assistant U.S. attorneys, and one – Sarah SaldaƱa – is currently a federal prosecutor. All are Democrats and have sought local political office, one successfully.
I've not seen any speculation about possible US Attorney replacements in Texas' other three federal judicial districts. Readers with any knowledge on the topic, please share it in the comments.

How about David Van Os to replace Johnny Sutton. Didn't he run for AG in 2006? I know he has ethics which seems to be half the battle in this state.

Maybe it's just me, but it's a little hard to imagine David Van Os as a workaday prosecutor. :)

Snipes is a hard core, radical Republican who recently to the Democratic Party. Spines knows that the voters of Dallas County will elect even a Nazi if his name appears in the column of Democrats on election day.

Thank you straight party voters.
