Clinton Urges Hearings For Herman

President Clinton told reporters yesterday that the Senate should schedule hearings for his nominee to serve as Secretary of Labor, Alexis Herman. Clinton commented, “There has still not been a hearing. I think that’s a big mistake. She has wide support among labor — labor unions endorsed her yesterday Ð and she has wide support among business.” He went on to say, “She is clearly well qualifiedÉand if she gets a hearing, she will be confirmed.” Herman, Clinton’s only African-American female nominee, is also the only nominee who does not yet have a scheduled hearing.
