Vilsack For Agriculture Secretary

tom-vilsack.thumbnail.jpgWell, yet another "diverse" pick from Obama.  Vilsack’s an ethanol lover, which is bad but only to be expected since Obama thinks Ethanol is wonderful too (something about Iowa caucuses, I think.)  On the other hand, he does love wind energy too, although as Ag Secretary that’s a bit out of his bailiwick. Still, farms are good places to put Wind Turbines and a strong Secretary grabs the ground he wants anyway.
