Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, complimented President Bush for his choices to fill the secretary of state and attorney general cabinet positions.
Bush has tapped his current National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice to be his new secretary of state. The President's choice is Alberto Gonzales to be the next attorney general.

Rice would replace Colin Powell if she is approved by the Senate.

"I've worked personally with Dr. Rice on export security issues. She's exceptionally intelligent, receptive to ideas and has already demonstrated solid leadership," said Enzi. "I'm hopeful her confirmation will be swift and smooth."

Gonzales would replace John Ashcroft.

"Mr. Gonzales's credentials speak for themselves. He is an example of the American dream. From his humble beginnings as one of seven children of migrant workers growing up in Texas, he has learned the value of hard work and perseverance. I look forward to confirming his nomination."
