Obama Names Salazar and Vilsack to Cabinet Posts
WASHINGTON -- President-elect Barack Obama today named Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.) to be secretary of the interior and former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack to be secretary of agriculture.
Obama said Salzar, who has been in the Senate for four years, "will bring to the Department of the Interior an abiding commitment to this land we love. His family has farmed and ranched the same land in Colorado for five generations."
