Obama should get high marks for his choice of Vilsack. Since leaving the IA governship, he has been promoting renewable energy. He understands wind as well as the whole biofuels industry ... plus he has traveled to China ... he even understands the need to improve CAFE standards. I bet that Congressman Walz and Governor Vilsack have had more than a few casual conversations. And being a Governor, he understands the food stamps program and how critical the farm industry is.

IMO, this is Obama's best cabinet selection. I cringed when I read that Obama was considering Rep. JoAnne Emerson (R-MO) for the job ... she admits that she doesn't know anything about farming. You may remember that she was Gutknecht's partner in his efforts to reimport drugs.
