My dear friend, Edith Ramirez, was nominated to the Federal Trade Commission. She’s good people, a fabulous mentor, and someone who’ll do a great job. One reason why I’m a big fan of hers is that she’s too modest to trumpet even this level of accomplishment. That’s why I’ll do it for her.
Wish her luck!
