Obama taps Bob McDonald to head VA

President Obama Nominates New VA Secretary

(CNN) — As expected, President Barack Obama announced Bob McDonald as his choice to head the troubled Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday.

He described McDonald — a West Point graduate and former CEO of Procter & Gamble — as one of the “nation’s most accomplished business leaders and managers.”

“He’s no nonsense. He’s pragmatic. He does not seek the limelight,” Obama said about his pick.

McDonald’s nomination must be confirmed by the Senate.
