Bodman Nominated for Secretary of Energy

Samuel Bodman was nominated today by President Bush to become the Secretary of Energy in Bush's second term. On his agenda as head of the Department on Energy would be to focus on drilling in Alaska to ease a shrinking domestic supply for oil.

Bodman is a well educated, well accomplished man: He has taught chemical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, served as president of Fidelity Investments, and run a chemical company. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in chemical engineering in 1961 and has a doctorate in science from MIT. (AP)

Bodman would replace Spencer Abraham, who resigned last month.
