Betty Sutton for Secretary of Labor!

Now that Hilda Solis has stepped down it's appropriate to talk about replacements. Former congresswoman Betty Sutton is an ideal pick in my humble opinion. She spent her life as a Labor-side labor attorney and as a congresswoman always fought for issues important to working families. I think that she would be the best S.O.L. since Robert Reich and that we ought to use DU power to advocate on her behalf.

3. Obama seriously needs to address the need to appoint a woman to his Cabinet!

I love what he did in his first administration but he has to continue the work. It won't end, sexism is too widespread and he needs to be in the forefront of the struggle for women's rights. I know his heart is in the right place, he just has to move out of his comfort zone and get with the program of getting more women in the highest level of government possible...
