Now the Humane Society has come out with its list of picks for Ag Secretary. They like "John Boyd, Jr., founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association, and former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack." They're against Stenholm, because he's a tool of the factory farming lobby and opposes any animal protections.
Sadly, there's no common candidate between the Humane Society and the foodie lobby. They should be able to get along, as neither side likes factory farming and the foodies did mention humane treatment of animals in their recommendations.
