WASHINGTON — Ron Kirk, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick for U.S. trade representative, doesn’t have much of a track record on trade, leaving many in the fashion industry wondering how he’ll approach key issues.
Obama announced the selection of Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas, to the cabinet post at a press conference in Chicago on Friday, along with nominating Rep. Hilda Solis (D., Calif.), a strong union supporter and advocate for workers’ rights, as secretary of labor. Both must be confirmed by the Senate.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
