Official: Bush to nominate new HUD secretary

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Bush will nominate Steve Preston to replace Alphonso Jackson as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a senior administration official said Friday.

The nomination must be voted on by the Senate.

Preston administers the Small Business Administration, a job he began in July 2006. That agency advocates on behalf of small businesses, helps advance the economy and assists in rebuilding efforts following a disaster.

    HUD has always been a disaster prior to the Bush administration and I'm not saying that in support of Bush, all you have to do is look back on the history of HUD. I hope Obama can clean it up or clean it out. Vote Obama.

    Bush is going to do what he wants.........remember when he cheated his way to the whitehouse the truth is if you are not earning what the elite top 6% are he really doesnt care about you or what you think...he is exteremly well connected, welathy and powerful, and is only getting richer its clear his "good" intentions are not for average americans he could care less about you...........he's a little better than you......thats how bonesmen are bred(check out skull and bones via google) if average americans want a shot at the fading "american dream" youd better vote democratic.
