The head of the NAACP said Friday that President-elect Bush, who has yet to name a black to any high-level position, has pledged to put a black in his Cabinet.
Bush, meantime, reiterated his promise to make the Cabinet representative of women and minorities. "Stay tuned," he told reporters.The vice president continued his string of meetings with various interest groups. He spent about 30 minutes with Benjamin Hooks of the NAACP before a session with 13 conservatives, including Edwin Feulner Jr., president of the Heritage Foundation, and Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation.
Also among the conservatives on Bush's schedule was Robert Woodson, a black businessman from North Carolina who has been mentioned as a possible secretary of housing and urban development.
