Obama: not enough women in cabinet

From CNN Politics:
"Some women's groups are disappointed [in Obama's cabinet selection]. Among Obama's strongest backers during the election, they now say they don't have enough seats at the table.

That's because of Obama's 20 announced Cabinet-level posts, five went to women: Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as homeland security secretary, Sen. Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, Rep. Hilda Solis as labor secretary, Susan Rice as United Nations ambassador and Lisa Jackson as Environmental Protection Agency chief."

And it's not just the women who are angry - the gay and lesbian factions are also disappointed in a number of his selections.
