I'd be interested in hearing opinions about Mr. Leavitt...nothing controversial came up in any searches, and he's only been mentioned on this forum
in passing, relating to his former EPA role. It would also be interesting to hear any an views on how the Bush cabinet is shaping up overall; can we
expect the next 4 years to be better, worse, or just "more of the same"?
Please note that the supporting link is Mr. Leavitt's bio from the EPA site.
