  1. Obama to Tap Ex-Procter and Gamble Boss for VA

    President Obama is expected to nominate former Procter & Gamble CEO Robert McDonald today to head the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs. McDonald has some military experience, but it’s his management skills that have caught the president’s eye. Well, that, and the fact that he has supported Republican candidates in the past, so he’s unlikely to spark GOP complaints. Less controversy would mean more time for addressing the mismanagement and botched care-delivery allegations facing the agency.
