The Cable reported last week that Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg was being considered to be the next dean of Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. "It would be news to me," Steinberg emailed to say when asked for comment before we published the item. State Department spokesman PJ Crowley later provided the following statement saying that Steinberg is not "a candidate" for the deanship. "He has a great job now as a key player within the administration helping develop policy alternatives regarding the most complex and urgent challenges facing our country. He is not seeking another one."
