Linda Chavez, George W. Bush’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, this week withdrew herself from consideration amid questions about an illegal immigrant who lived in her home. Other nominees, like Attorney General-designate John Ashcroft, face ideological opposition. Diane and her guests discuss the President-elect’s cabinet picks – how they were chosen and how they’ll weather the confirmation process.

Guests

  • Ralph Neas Chief executive, National Coalition on Health Care
  • David Keene Chairman of the American Conservative Union and managing associate with Carmen Group, a D.C.-based governmental-affairs firm
  • Thomas Edsall Covered national politics for the "Washington Post" from 2001 to 2006, now a special correspondent for "The New Republic."
