Bush Appointments

President Elect George W. Bush today announced three more members of his cabinet, naming the new heads of the Departments of Energy, Labor and Transportation. The energy job went to Spencer Abraham, a Republican senator from Michigan who lost his bid for re-election in November. The new labor secretary will be Linda Chavez, who served in the administration of President Ronald Reagan. And Bush made good on his intention to have a bipartisan cabinet by picking a Democrat, Norman Mineta, who is in the current cabinet. Mineta, a longtime congressman, is now the secretary of commerce, will become the secretary of transportation. NPR's Don Gonyea reports.
