The Washington Post reports that in his first meet and greet with his team as Interior Secretary Ken Salazar challenged President Obama. Salazar said that he and the Department of the Interior would like to take on President Obama and his White House team in a basketball game. As the Post noted, good luck. Not only does the White House team have Obama, but also former Duke basketball back-up Reggie Love is on the president's staff. The challenge arose indirectly in response to a National Park Service employee Wendy O’Sullivan telling Secretary Salazar, who is the former Colorado attorney general, that her brother, a Denver-area attorney, had once played in a basketball league that included Salazar and members of the office of attorney general.
