President Clinton has made a number of interesting nominations in 1997-SEP and OCT:
bulletHe nominated James Hormel, 64, as ambassador to Luxembourg. Hormel is an openly gay man, an heir to the Hormel Meat Company fortune. He is an attorney who taught at the University of Chicago. He probably faces a difficult confirmation battle with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Sen. Jesse Helms (R, NC) is its chairperson. His opposition to equal rights for gays and lesbians is legendary.

There are reports that Hormel had been considered as ambassador to Fiji. However, Fiji protested the idea; in that island, homosexual behavior is still criminalized.

bulletIn late 1997-SEP, the President appointed Virginia Apuzzo as assistant secretary for policy, management and budget. She has become the highest-ranking openly lesbian person in the Federal government. [There are two Federal employees at a higher rank who are believed to be closet lesbians]
bulletHe nominated M. John Berry, an openly gay man, as an assistant secretary for the Interior Department.
