Rick Sanchez says he would consider taking Keith Olbermann's job at MSNBC.

In an interview with RumorFix, Sanchez said that, if he was offered Olbermann's old gig, "it would be worth considering."

Of course, that could be slightly difficult, since Lawrence O'Donnell was immediately shifted to fill Olbermann's timeslot, and since "Countdown" has been retired.

Sanchez also praised Olbermann, saying that "he gets it. There's a nuance to his message that will likely be missed." He said he was "shocked" when Olbermann left MSNBC last Friday.
