NPR this afternoon announced that Barak Obama had named a “key figure in his administration”. Turns out it was Bill Richardson, appointed to be our next Commerce Secretary. I’m sure that Governor Richardson is a fine man and our country will be well served by him but “Commerce Secretary” and “key figure” seem to me to be mutually exclusive terms. Can you name our current Commerce Secretary? Without Googling? I can’t.
