It's Vilsack: Obama Picks Pro-GMO and Pro-Biofuels Ag Secretary

………..So how will we fare with Vilsack in this position? Nichols again:
Vilsack is a capable administrator with the right partisan credentials.
But he was only at the top of the list of Agriculture secretary prospects because he is a prominent Democrat who comes from what Washington insiders know as a "farm state." As governor of Iowa, Vilsack had to engage with farm issues. But that embrace was anything but inspired. Family farm activists, fair-trade campaigners
and advocates for organic foods were regularly disappointed by the stands he took. The Organic Consumers Association was blunt, declaring: "Vilsack has a glowing reputation as being a schill for agribusiness biotech giants like Monsanto."
