Clinton Urges Hearings For Herman

President Clinton told reporters yesterday that the Senate should schedule hearings for his nominee to serve as Secretary of Labor, Alexis Herman. Clinton commented, "There has still not been a hearing. I think thats a big mistake. She has wide support among labor -- labor unions endorsed her yesterday and she has wide support among business." He went on to say, "She is clearly well qualifiedand if she gets a hearing, she will be confirmed." Herman, Clintons only African-American female nominee, is also the only nominee who does not yet have a scheduled hearing.
