The news that a kayaker, Sally Jewell, has been nominated by President Obama to be the next Secretary of the Interior seems to have generated a lot of interest. I guess you don't often see a picture of a future cabinet secretary in a kayak.
But perhaps we shouldn't be all that surprised about the choice of Ms Jewell.
After all, the President is a kayaker himself. Check out this picture of President Obama kayaking off Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard in the summer of 2010.
