Bush picks Kellogg head to head Commerce Dept.

President Bush on Monday chose Carlos Gutierrez, a native of Cuba who rose from truck driver to chief executive officer of Kellogg Co., to be secretary of Commerce.

Is it just me or is he choosing all minorities now? He has no Jew in his cabinet. Wolfowitz doesn't count as he is an undersecretary. Even Mehlman would have been a better choice.

All his nominees are either female or Hispanic. It's good to show diversity but he needs to appoint a Jew.

Gutierrez made $10,500 in campaign donations at the federal level in the 2003-04 election cycle, including $4,000 to the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC and $6,500 to Republican congressional candidates, data compiled by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics shows.

Money doesn't grow on trees you know. He wasn't even a Bush pioneer. He's from Cuba so he'll never be able to be President.
