Two President and the Sestak Job Offer
But as the article itself clearly states, there was no "job" offer [emphasis added]:
Rep. Joe Sestak, a Pennsylvania Democrat, was urged last summer to take a prestigious presidential advisory position in exchange not running against Sen. Arlen Specter in the state's Democratic primary.
Obviously, an unpaid "advisory position" is not the same thing as a "job." Here's the definition of "job":
1. A regular activity performed in exchange for payment, especially as one's trade, occupation, or profession.
I realize it sounds better for the press to claim that the White House offered Sestak a "job." But since that claim is not true, it might be wise for the press to stop telling that tale.
