Obama Picks Vilsack, Salazar for Cabinet

CHICAGO (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama is on a pre-holiday
roll to fill his Cabinet.
He has two more nominations in former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack for
agriculture secretary and Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar to lead the
Interior Department.
Obama is appearing with his latest picks today, at his third
news conference in as many days to announce Cabinet appointments.
Transition officials say more announcements are likely this week,
before Obama plans to head to Hawaii for Christmas vacation with
his family.
Vilsack will be the fourth former opponent of Obama from the
2008 campaign to join his administration. Others include Vice
President-elect Joe Biden, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has
been tapped for secretary of state, and New Mexico Gov. Bill
Richardson, selected to head the Commerce Department.

    It sure feels good to know we have now elected a leader with intelligence enough to move this country forward and away from the mess the republicans have created.
