    Do you have anyone in mind who has not been a successful businessman/politician? Because, I am more than open to hearing suggestions!

     Or did you just show up to snipe?

      But if you must know, I am with Matthew Yglesias on this one: the Department of Commerce doesn't do anything important in the post-Reagan (actually post-Carter) period so who cares who the Secretary of Commerce is?  Al Gore doesn't have any expertise in what little is left in DoC's purview so he strikes me as a pretty random choice, vs. dozens or hundreds of people who might know something more about the portfolio.

      You know, I sometimes think if I could see, I'd be kicking a lot of ass. -Stevie Wonder at the Glastonbury Festival, 2010
