As for others, many I've never heard of - not a good sign. Ramesh
would be fine if we want to continue an Indian tradition, I think
he's the best bet. Rousseau doesn't really impress me too much - if
you want a terrestrial French rep, go with Francoise Gasse. She
deserves to be insulted it we pass her up for someone like Rousseau.
Of course, having both her and Rick could be viewed as a problem
(both good, but both PEPIII).

Let me know if I can provide more info or help prior to your AGU mtg. Thx, Peck
