The New Energy Secretary nominee

...and this is a bad thing? After 4 years of being accused of being too cozy with energy executives, President Bush nominates a relative outsider as Energy Secretary. Of course, the media (esp. Reuters) disparages the event. Since when is it an essential that a Cabinet Secretary be a professional in the field his or her prospective agency regulates (as if being a chemical engineer and President of Fidelity Investments is not sufficient grounding)? Imagine the howling if President Bush had nominated the Chairman of Exxon-Mobil to this post!
