President Obama is rolling out several top picks for his new cabinet this week. On Monday he announced that he was nominating former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense and counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan as CIA director, and on Thursday he announced his nomination to head up the Treasury department- current White House chief of staff Jack Lew.  Many of you had questions about the president’s selections, including a question that’s generating a lot of buzz right now- where are the women?
