Confirmation Week

NPR's Peter Overby reports Congress will have a busy week of confirmation hearings for President-elect Bush's cabinet nominees. Hearings for Mr. Bush's choices of John Ashcroft for Attorney General and Gale Norton for Interior Secretary are expected to be contentious. But other nominees, such as Tommy Thompson as Health and Human Services Secretary and Christie Whitman as EPA Administrator are likely to sail through with few snags.
