Obama Completes Cabinet With Two Jewish Nominees

President Obama completed filling out his second term cabinet today when, as reported in the Political Insider last week, he nominated Chicago businesswoman Penny Pritzker as secretary of commerce and Mike Froman to be the U.S. Trade Representative.

Pritzker, a longtime Obama supporter and fundraiser, brings extensive experience in the real estate, finance and hotel industries; her family owns the Hyatt hotel chain. 

Obama described Froman, a former Harvard Law School classmate of his, as “one of the world’s foremost experts on our global economy.”
