    Oh, if the committee was 20+ members, I'd be sure he wanted it to go nowhere. If the committee was 10 or less, I'd be sure he was looking for real action. The 15 number is right in the grey area.

    1. Loaded with ND GOP members: Burgum is conceding higher-ed power to the legislature in return for other political considerations.

    2. Loaded with business interests: We're going to see a push for job training to extend into the four-year schools instead of the more open-ended programs.

    3. Loaded with existing higher-ed interests: Burgam wants the status quo, but wants to look like he's doing something.

    4. A fairly even mix of the above: About the same as #3, but Burgam knows no one will be happy with the results of the committee, so he wants them to fight amongst themselves in the news so he looks blameless.



    I expect it to be the last one, but either of the first two would be inviting disaster.

    I dont think Burgum needs to do anything politically just for the sake of doing something because he's already one of the top 5 most popular Governors in the nation. He doesn't strike me as the type of guy who would just do something for the sake of doing something

    Bisonville is a pretty good place to discuss online college education. It's a lot like fantasy football.
