Obama Names Gov. Locke Commerce Secretary

After a tremendous speech last night to a joint session of Congress, Barack Obama made more news today by announcing ex- Gov. Gay Locke (D-WA) as the third (and hopefully final) nominee for Commerce Secretary. Let's hope that he doesn't have any intra-state issues like Richardson has, since the partisan turmoil that Gregg (R-NH) brought up is irrelevant here.

Oh and of course, this is one less position that Governor Sebelius can occupy. Now to find someone to fill in at HHS so that her coyness about the position results in her run for Senate next year.
