DFC Recommendation of Richardson for Cabinet

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

The National Committee of the Democratic Freedom Caucus issued the following statement:

The Democratic Freedom Caucus respectfully recommends that President-elect Barack Obama appoint Bill Richardson to serve as Secretary of State, or in another position in his cabinet.

Bill Richardson’s experience as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Representative in Congress, Governor of New Mexico, and U.S. Secretary of Energy, makes him extremely well-qualified to serve as Secretary of State, or in another cabinet position of President-elect Obama’s choice.

The Democratic Freedom Caucus is a caucus which promotes the values the Democratic Party was founded upon: individual liberty, constitutional democracy, and social responsibility. http://www.democraticfreedomcaucus.org
