When Will New Commissioner Be Nominated?

     The President is to make a "personnel announcement" this afternoon. It could be the nomination of a new Commissioner of Social Security but I wouldn't bet on it. There's been no sign that a new Commissioner will be nominated anytime soon. 
     Social Security has been operating with an Acting Commissioner now for about 11 months. It's time for the President to act.

He has no incentive to act. Colvin has the same basic powers/authority as acting as she would have if made "permanent", she can stay in the position until a new president is elected, and this way the president has someone in place who will do his bidding without having to deal with a confirmation battle.
