Has Norman Mineta switched party registration?
If he hasn't we should encourage him to do so. If he wants to be secretary of transportation under the most inept and corrupt administration in history he should be encouraged to get out of the Party.

4. why do you say that ?
i never heard anything bad about him. he served under the clinton administration and i always just saw him as the token Democrat in the Bush administration.

7. A person I used to work with
told me some stuff, but I can't really vouch for its accuracy. But anyone that works for this guy isn't worth my time anyhow.

10. A Vague Baseless "Friend of Friend SMEAR Against Minetta
says volumes about the character of someone who would post such tripe.

11. as I said
the fact that the guy would work for Bush speaks volumes about his character and gives some credence to what I was told. To me, the guy is a sellout

3. You Don't Know What You're Talking About
Norm Mineta is a great American and a great Democrat.

It's posts like yours which serve only to deepen partisanship in this country. Would you rather have yet another Republican in that office? Better to have at least one small bastion of sanity in the entire administration.

5. Actually I know more than you think
I grew up in that area. So I do know a lot about him. But, if he wants that post let him leave.
