"Just interesting news:"

Great news for the environment! She'll give those clowns in D.C. heartburn. Not to mention she's awesomely fit. I got "bunned" by her last year on a trail, when I was moving at about 3.5 mph on a moderate grade. Passed me like The Roadrunner, not even breathing hard. Beep beep, vroooooommmmmmmm..... :)

It is certainly a bit different. Will it mean notably different policies?

It sounds like she has both an environment perspective and running a company/petroleum engineer perspective. Will make both sides mad. Might actually accomplish something?

C'mon, he chose her because she came with a no-questions-asked return policy. What a deal!

You mean she will institute a no-questions-asked return policy at Interior?

She would likely offer us a 20% discount on a single item (with certain restrictions).

Maybe we can get a yearly 10% rebate on all fees we pay?

Maybe the amount of rebate will depend on how much profit the country makes
