Ridge Sworn In Friday as Secretary of Homeland Security
As President George W. Bush watches, Vice President Dick Cheney swears in Tom Ridge as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security in the Cross Hall Jan. 24, 2003. Secretary Ridge's wife, Michele, and children, Tom and Lesley, hold the Bible during the administering of the oath. "In October of 2001, when I established the office -- the White House Office of Homeland Security -- I knew immediately that Tom was the right man for the assignment. He's a decisive, clear-thinking executive who knows how to solve problems. He's a person of integrity and a person of good judgment," said the President in his remarks.
