Tom Vilsack has been slotted for the Ag Secretary. This an awful but predictable pick. I tend to think this will mean Obama will be inclined to piss more money away on Ethanol.
Update: I might have spoken too quickly. Apparently Vilsack is on record as opposing tariffs imposed on Brazilian sugar based ethanol which is much more efficient than corn based ethanol. I still think this nomination is less than optimal but maybe it is not as bad as I initially thought.
