Transportation Draws A Card

It's musical-chair time at the White House, as the Administration taps one of its own to be the new Transportation Secretary. Andrew H. Card, 44, deputy to former Chief of Staff John H. Sununu, will replace Samuel K. Skinner in the job. Skinner earlier vacated the transportation job to succeed Sununu.

A Massachusetts native, Card holds an engineering degree, but he has spent most of his career in politics. Card has no transportation background, but his low-key style makes quick Senate confirmation likely.
