Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't see any big names or big ideas in the Obama Transition team for agriculture - which is surprising given how close it is to core Democratic issues of the Environment, Energy, food, community, and sustainability.

Any ideas as to who might/should be the next Secretary for Agriculture?

I haven't heard anything other than the float of Gov. Vilsack (Iowa), but anyone who should be Sec'y of Agriculture would be chewed up in confirmation.

Actually, despite being a former governor of Iowa ... or perhaps because of being, if familiarity with Agribusiness sometimes breeds contempt ... from what little I saw in the blogosphere reaction to Vilsack, it seems like he might have been better than some of the traditional Secretaries of Agribusiness that we have had.

Of course, on the timelines of transition past, we are getting announcements incredibly early.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
