中国日报网环球在线消息:据美国媒体12月19日报道,当选总统奥巴马意欲提名前达拉斯市长罗恩·柯克(RonKirk)为美国贸易代表,共和党人希尔达·索利斯(HildaSolis)为劳工部长。罗恩·柯克一贯积极倡导自由贸易,而索利斯则是自由贸易的反对者。 媒体分析认为,由奥巴马的选择可预见美国政府日后在贸易管理层的分裂局面。   在总统竞选期间,就贸易政策而言,奥巴马阵营仅对多哈回合贸易协定予以了积极评价,但目前该谈判已经陷入僵局。参与谈判的国家和地区?#32423;?#22885;巴马新政府将采取怎样的贸易政策拭目以待。许多贸易专家认为,有着国际主义倾向的奥巴马将会通过某种方式来支持自由贸易。   通过提名支持自由贸易的前达拉斯市长罗恩·柯克为美国贸易代表,奥巴马为民主党倡导自由贸易政策做了储备。自1995年至2001年期间,罗恩·柯克担任达拉斯市市长,也是该市第一?#29615;?#27954;裔市长。他积极推动达拉斯市走向世界,并对北美自由贸易协定持推崇赞赏态?#21462;?   而奥巴马意欲提名的劳工部长希尔达·索利斯于2000年首次进入国会。她反对中美洲自由贸易协定,视北美自由贸易协定为洪水猛兽,认为国外廉价劳动力带走了制造商,抢了美国人的饭碗。   媒体分析认为,奥巴马提名加州共和党人索利斯为劳工部长,又给那些反对自由贸易的民主党人吃下一颗“定心丸”。
附录SHRM网站刊登的一篇英文报道:  
Obama to Nominate Rep. Hilda Solis as Labor Secretary
By Bill Leonard
President-elect Barack Obama will nominate U.S. Rep. Hilda Solis, D-Calif., to be Labor Secretary, according to newspapers and wire service reports. Obama is set to make a formal announcement during a press conference on Dec. 19, 2009, in Chicago.
When called for a comment, a member of Solis’s congressional staff said that her office could not confirm her nomination. If nominated, Solis would be the first Hispanic woman named to serve on Obama’s cabinet.
Her nomination comes as a surprise, political observers say, because Solis has built a reputation during her four terms in the House as an advocate for the environment and immigration and has not concentrated on workplace or labor issues. Organized labor groups had been urging the Obama transition team to name a high profile labor advocate, such as Linda Chavez-Thompson, former executive vice president of the AFL-CIO and a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Solis, who represents California’s 32nd Congressional District, was re-elected to her fifth term by a wide margin from the heavily Democratic and Hispanic district located on the eastern edge of Los Angeles. She serves as a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, and is the vice chair of the Environment and Hazardous Materials Subcommittee. She was recently named to serve on the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. Early in her congressional tenure, Solis was a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee.
“Hilda Solis is a very strong champion of working families and will be an outstanding Secretary of Labor,” said Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., who chairs the Labor and Education committee, to reporters after news of her impending nomination broke. “Her record in the California legislature as a leader on labor issues and her excellent work in Congress on behalf our of nation’s working men and women will restore the Department of Labor as an advocate for hard-working Americans.”
While most business groups declined to comment on Obama’s selection of Solis until a formal announcement is made, former Rep. David Bonior, who chairs the advocacy group American Rights at Work, was quick to praise her nomination.
“She is a terrific leader who I know firsthand will work tirelessly on behalf of America’s working families,” Bonior said in a statement.
Several different reports had named Bonior as leading contender for the labor secretary spot, but he announced earlier in December that he had withdrawn his name from consideration. Sources also reported that Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm declined the nomination this week, telling President-elect Obama that she did not want to give up her governorship “at such a critical time.”
The nomination of Solis was Obama’s final cabinet pick. The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The Washington Post speculated that the Obama transition team had faced some unexpected problems and hurdles when vetting appropriate candidates for Labor Secretary. Obama’s transition team declined to comment on the process and had indicated that the president-elect would complete his cabinet choices before the Christmas 2008 holiday.
