United States President-elect, George W. Bush, is close to finalising his choice of Cabinet nominees for his new administration which will take office on January 20.

Bush-CheneyPresident-elect George W Bush and Vice-President-elect Dick Cheney

All Cabinet nominees have to be approved by the Senate, in a process that will begin in the coming week. The relevant Senate committees will conduct public hearings at which the nominees will be interrogated. A full vote of the Senate follows a recommendation from a committee.

At this stage, those most likely to face a grilling and possible rejection in the confirmation process are:

  • nominee for Interior Secretary, Gale Norton, the former Colorado Attorney-General, who has a long history of favouring limited regulation of land use.

These two candidates represent the most right-wing of the incoming president’s choices. [Read more…]
