Phenomenal Choice by Obama for Energy Secretary
Numerous sources indicate that Obama has chosen Steven Chu, a nobel winning physicist, to be his Secretary of Energy. This choice is arguably the best choice yet in a string of superb cabinet picks.
Not an industry insider, not a fellow politician, not a celebrity, but a true scientist. Its not just a demonstration that Obama is serious about creating energy solutions, this is a win for all of us who are sick and tired of a president who has treated science like a foreign language. Its safe to think in the White House again.
Chu is a perfect start to Obama's ambitious plans for alternative energy development, and should be an inspiring choice for those of us who see our country's future closely tied to our energy economy.
