Voices of Power: Interview with Secretary Salazar

The Washington Post has posted three video interviews of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.

Salazar said a big part of his job is to review decisions made by his predecessors. "There was a mess that was left here by the prior administration," he said in one video.

Salazar criticized Republicans for holding back his deputy secretary choice, David Hayes. So far, Salazar is the only confirmed nominee at the Interior Department.

It doesn't appear Salazar was asked about Indian issues during the interview.
