Will new OMB Director Jim Nussle ever be heard from again?
That's the question I I try to answer in this week's "Budget Battles" column on nationaljournal.com.
There's little doubt that Nussle's preference is to get out there and score points for the White Houset. He is combative, partisan, and likes to mix it up. (Remember, this is the representative who made a speech on the House floor with a bag over his head to criticize the Democratic leadership. )
