So glad she was finally confirmed. I think she will do a great job, and so glad to see how eager she is to get started. I've seen her on a few of the MSNBC shows. She has my vote. I hope she can fend off the filibusters and blocks the Rs will throw up to block anything she tries to accomplish. I hope they can't do that. Thanks, my friend.

Noted. Thanks, Cher. Good news....I just hope she's able to be more effective than Lisa Jackson was. According to Gasland Part 2, it was "higher ups" that are allowing the fracking to occur. I don't know if this is one of the reasons Jackson left office, but in some interviews, she seemed disheartened. Guess we'll find out who's really in charge...soon, I hope!
