Posted May 30, 2014 at 4:48pm

Former Major League Baseball star Jose Canseco is done with being just Twitter famous. He wants into the big show.


The all-star slugger turned reality TV go-to dusted off his #yeswecanseco slogan Friday — you know, the one he used during his short-lived bid to unseat embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford — in order to lobby President Barack Obama for exiting White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s post.  

Canseco’s Twinterview was short, but quite telling.  

He provided insights into his:  

Management skills  

Media savvy  


And messaging discipline  


Given that White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest has already been tapped to become the next press corps punching bag, Canseco wisely floated alternative career options as well.
