Salazar’s hearing before Senate Committe-
Sounds like any generic, old school Western Democrat that has been in this “saddle” many times before-
Ken Salazar promises reform at Interior Department. LA Times. By Jim Tankersley
Barack Obama criticized — again — over pick of Ken Salazar as Interior secretary. By Pete Thomas. LA Times.
I should add that there are those who say many of Obama’s cabinet choices will not have a lot of freedom of action because the big decisions will be made by advisors at higher levels closer to the President. This can be good or bad, depending on the advisors, the President and the issue.
