US Commerce Secretary Gary Locke shared a few other personal details in the interview with China Daily today. His childhood dream was to be a forest ranger or a teacher.

And he enjoys golf -- and fixing the plumbing.

"I like to repair things, and I like to do things with my hands," he said. "I'm very good at plumbing. I'm very good at electrical systems. I'm very good at construction, and I enjoy that."
