When Bill Richardson was named U.S. ambassador here after 13 years as a member of Congress from New Mexico, he liked to tell reporters that the U.N. and the House of Representatives had a lot in common. "The United Nations is a parliamentary body, just like Congress is a parliamentary body, and in a parliamentary body, you can't make personal enemies," he would say. "You have to fight someone one day, and then the next day you'll need his vote."

Hazel O'Leary's friends say she was not hunting for a job in the new Clinton Administration. Although three years in Minneapolis as an executive at Northern States Power Co. had not enamored her of Minnesota winters, she was fully immersed in her job. And she was promoted just last week, a sign that she must have been doing it well, they point out.

Waggling his finger and glaring angrily, President-elect Bill Clinton lashed out Monday at "bean counters" who have criticized his Cabinet selections as short on women and minorities, saying that they are "playing quota games and math games" and ignoring his non-Cabinet appointments. "I think I'm doing a good job," Clinton said, adding that his Cabinet selection process "has a lot of integrity."

The day after President-elect Bill Clinton picked Hazel O'Leary as energy secretary, she was back in her fifth-floor office at a utility company talking with Kris Sanda, Minnesota's public service commissioner. "I told Hazel that she really deserves the job," recalled Sanda, a Republican who has sometimes differed with O'Leary. "She said: 'Kris, you're the only one who has said that to me so far.' " As O'Leary realized, her nomination last week caught many people off guard.

Pena said he will leave the Energy post after less than 18 months for a private job that will give him more time with his family. The former Transportation secretary and two-term Denver mayor ruled out a return to politics.
