NPR's Pam Fessler reports on President-elect Bush's selection of a new Labor Secretary-designate and a US Trade Representative-designate. Elaine Chao is being tapped to follow Linda Chavez, who withdrew her name for the Labor Department. Robert Zoellick is in line for U.S. Trade Representative. At a news conference today, Bush also defended two other nominees, saying he will stand by John Ashcroft for Attorney General and Gayle Norton for Interior Secretary.
