RFK Jr. for EPA?

Photobucket Everybody wants to know: Who will Obama pick for his administration? For head of the Environmental Protection Agency, DTE would recommend Robert Kennedy Jr. Speaking about Obama yesterday, Kennedy said "His disposition is very much like my uncle," referencing President John Kennedy, in the Huffington Post. "The intellectual passion and the coolness and the dry humor. And I think his obsession and his preoccupation with justice, and including all of the different members of our society -- he just understands that we have to go forward as a community... The extraordinary demonstrations on election night and through this morning, with young people, we didn't even see that magnitude of demonstration in 1960 when my uncle was elected." Kennedy, head of the Riverkeeper Alliance and author of “Crimes Against Nature,” said he was just as excited for the complete overhaul of the environmental agenda Obama has planned. "I think that Barack Obama understands that energy must be the centerpiece for his administration…and energy is intertwined with all other issues.”
