BREAKING: Secretaries of Commerce and Homeland Security Announced

CNN reports that Chicago businesswoman Penny Pritzker has been tapped by President-Elect Obama to become the next Secretary of Commerce. According to MSNBC’s transition website:

Penny Pritzker, Obama campaign fundraiser and chairwoman of four corporations: TransUnion, Classic Residence by Hyatt, Pritzker Realty Group and The Parking Spot

CNN is also reporting that Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will be named the head of the Department of Homeland Security. Napolitano is hugely popular in her home state–preliminary polls show that, if she were to run against John McCain in 2010, she’d unseat him–and she has extensive experience dealing with immigration and border security.

More appointments as they come…
