Gregoire: Not being chatted up for Kagan’s job this trip

OLYMPIA -- Even though she's in Washington, D.C., Gov. Chris Gregoire says she's not talking about the White House about a job as Barack Obama's lawyer.

Gregoire has been mentioned as being on the short list to replace Elana Kagan as solicitor general, should Kagan be confirmed by the Senate for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. But she said she's had no meetings on that topic with the White House on this trip.

All the talking has been about Medicaid money and being clear between the feds and the states on who's in charge in case of terrorist attacks.
