November 5, 2008 – With the Obama presidency just a couple of months away, veterans want to know who will be at the helm of the VA.
Obama advisors are leaning toward three picks for VA Secretary.
First (or second) is Tammy Duckworth. Tammy is a disabled veteran of the Iraq War and currently head of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

Second (or first) is former Senator Max Cleland. Cleland is a highly-decorated disabled Vietnam veteran who headed up the VA (1977-1981) before it became a Cabinet-level Department.

And, third, is current VA Secretary James Peake. Some Obama advisors feel Peake is the best qualified and is doing a good job at the moment. I know some veterans who might differ.

So, who do you think … Duckworth … Cleland … Peake?
