Vilsack To Agriculture

NYT is reporting that former Iowa governor and (short-lived) Democratic presidential candidate Tom Vilsack will be Obama's secretary of agriculture. Vilsack endorsed Hillary Clinton during the primaries, questioning Obama's experience, but campaigned for the president-elect during the general election. He is slated to be announced at a press conference tomorrow, along with Ken Salazar for the interior secretary post. See here for an amusing anecdote via Jason about Vilsack's relationship with David Axelrod.
