Dan Goldin While most political appointees to high offices in the federal government submitted their resignations prior to President George W. Bush's inauguration Saturday, at least one will be staying for a little while longer. NASA Administrator Dan Goldin was asked by the Bush-Cheney transition team to remain at the helm of the space agency while a replacement is selected by the new president, AviationNow and SPACE.com report. Although Goldin was appointed nearly nine years ago by President Bush Sr. -- making Goldin the first administrator to serve under three presidents -- the new president is expected to replace him, although there has been no indication on when a replacement will be named. Several names have surfaced as possible successors to Goldin, including former senator and Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison Schmitt and Jake Garn, another former senator who flew on a 1985 shuttle flight while in office.
