Hilda Solis

Amidst all of the unsound choices Obama has made for his cabinet, there's at least one bright spot--his recent choice of California Rep. Hilda Solis as labor secretary. The daughter of blue collar Hispanic immigrants, she has worked tirelessly in California to promote a raise in the minimum wage and push for environmental justice legislation. She's also a pro-choice Catholic. Her voting record thus far looks principled and consistent, and displays strong main street values.

I'd be more enthusiastic if Obama had even one openly queer cabinet appointee.
