One source said he believed the final decision depends on the vetting of the Democratic governor, much like the selection of Eric Holder to be attorney general.

Also, multiple Democratic sources say billionaire Chicago businesswoman Penny Pritzker is Obama's choice for commerce secretary. Pritzker ran Barack Obama's record-breaking fundraising effort, serving as the campaign's finance chair.


************************************************

Penny Sue Pritzker (born 1959) is an American business executive, and a member of the Pritzker family of Chicago, one of America's wealthiest families. She is the founder and current Chair of Classic Residence by Hyatt, a chain of luxury senior living communities spread throughout the United States, and the national finance chair of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Ms. Pritzker is estimated to be the 135th richest person on the Forbes 400 list of "America's wealthiest," with an estimated net worth of $2.8 billion US.[1]

Ms. Pritzker has been associated with the Subprime mortgage crisis. Ms. Pritzker's late uncle, Jay Pritzker, purchased a 50% stake in Hinsdale, Illinois-based Superior Bank of Chicago in 1989 from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which had taken over the bank when it failed in the late 1980s.[16] Penny Pritzker became chairman of the bank in 1991. Under Ms. Pritzker's chairmanship, the bank "embarked on a business strategy of significant growth into subprime home mortgages," according to a 2002 report by the United States Treasury Department.

She attended Castilleja School[3] until 1977.

Castilleja students have the opportunity to start and lead clubs. To start a club, a student must be sponsored by teacher, who will become the club's mentor. These clubs serve a multitude of student needs- clubs include the Rainbow Alliance, an intramural Quidditch league, Physics Club, Chinese Club, the Sumerian Philosophy and Cheesetasting Club.

Born in 1959, Pritzker is a granddaughter of Abram Nicholas Pritzker

Abram Nicholas Pritzker (January 6, 1896 – February 8, 1986) was an American businessman who founded the Hyatt hotel chain.

The son of Ukrainian Jewish immigrants Annie and Nicholas Pritzker,[1] he graduated from Harvard Law School and worked for a time in the family's firm, Pritzker & Pritzker, before beginning with his brother Jack a business career that would launch a family empire. They invested in real estate and small companies, mostly around Chicago and amassed a considerable fortune. They shielded their earnings from taxes through a series of trusts(some in Bermuda - a anti-American tax avoidance model), which enabled them to distribute the money as they chose. Abram's philanthropic endeavors include funding the Pritzker School of Medicine at the University of Chicago.

I just heard about her possible nomination on the news....I thought it was an ethically poor choice when she was merely Obama's Campaign Finance Chairman, but this is beyond the pale for folk like me - those who want change - but not for change sake alone - putting another fox in charge of another hen house is not the sort of change I think is good for this country - of course my concerns continue to fall on deaf ears incapable of forming a valid defense/response - and apparently unaware that they should be.
