I think not. There really hasn't been any talk in these parts about it lately. Besides, he's getting pretty old. Even Fasel is younger.

He is, though, going to play a major role in picking the next president. And being one of those shrewd euro cabinet players who currently hold the federation in their grasp, it seems unlikely he'll want to see someone up there who might tip the balance of power or isn't easy to influence. If he sees Nicholson as someone who doesn't fit that bill, he may not be as natural choice as that article indicates.
