Online Exclusive: Full Interview with Deborah Platt Majoras
Q: Why do you think President Bush appointed you?
A: Considering I am not political, it's a tough question. The folks who made these decisions had worked closely with me in the DOJ. I worked hard. Also, at one point I had been up for a promotion. I didn't get it, and I was disappointed. Friends had advised me to leave, but I loved the job and had a lot to learn, so I stayed.
