The 1970 western “Monte Walsh” comes to mind with President Obama’s nomination of Sally Jewell, president and chief executive officer of Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), to replace Ken Salazar as secretary of the Interior. The difference between Ms. Jewell and the movie’s titular character is that Walsh stands true to his background, while Mr. Obama’s nominee seems content to run rough-shod over hers.
President Obama's pick of Sally Jewell as his new interior secretary immediately drew praise from the environmental community and even some in the oil and gas sector.
