An ousted Agriculture Department employee says she's considering a new position with the agency.

Shirley Sherrod was fired after a blogger posted an edited clip of a speech she made about race.

The comments she made were actually about overcoming racial bias.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and the White House have since apologized for firing her.
