Obama Picks Commerce Secretary.
Politico http://www.politico.com/politico44/ is reporting that President Obama is likely to announce that former State of Washington governor Gary Locke is his choice for Commerce Secretary. Politico pointed out that Locke was the first Chinese-American governor in U.S. history. What relevance Mr. Locke's ancestry has to do with his performance as governor of Washington or as a possible Secretary of Commerce, we do not know, except that it should make those that judge peoples by their ancestry, skin color or, gender, happy.
