Obama Taps Adult Adoptee As Secretary of Agriculture

Obama has chosen former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack to head the Department of Agriculture. According to Wikipedia,

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Tom Vilsack was orphaned at birth and placed in a Roman Catholic orphanage. He was adopted in 1951 by Bud and Dolly Vilsack, who raised him in the Roman Catholic faith. His adoptive father was a real-estate agent and insurance salesman, and his adoptive mother was a homemaker.

There's been lots of talk about Obama's diverse cabinet. Add this "category" to the list.
