Obama Makes Unconventional Pick for Interior

President Obama will nominate the head of the outdoor retail chain REI to head up the Interior Department, NBC News reports.

"The choice of CEO Sally Jewell is unconventional one, as the post has been filled in the past by politicians from the West. For example, the last five secretaries have been governors of Idaho and Arizona, a senator and attorney general from Colorado, and a congressman from New Mexico."
