The First Real Voice for Labor in Over 30 Years

Perhaps for only the second time in our lifetime, labor will have an advocate at the cabinet level. YGG may not be a fan, but Solis is the only overtly liberal cabinet appointment so far. Gates at Defense, Salazar at Interior, and Clinton at State have been giving progressives fits. On the whole, there is very little room for any "I told you so" moments.

I'm actually pretty impressed with Obama's cabinet picks so far. Even his salutory selection of Rick Warren for the inauguration demonstrates a willingness to confront his base.
