    This is yet another Clinton retread that Obama has tapped. More "hope" and "Change".....

    What wonderous CHANGE here. What happened to this "Yeah, Obama is inexperienced but he'll surround himself with the proper people"? Where are the people decrying Palin's experience? This is not only a poor, but a dangerous, appointment.

    I'm curious to know what a few people at the Agency think of such a nomination.

    Its a change in politics folks! No more cronnieism. No more incompetence. Its all changed!

    Seems his primary qualification was carping about torture.

    Do any of the Obama voters yet feel as though they ave been lied to?

    Or are simply sticking your fingers in your eyes and shouting, "He's not President, yet, he couldn't have broken any promises"?

    Anyone...
    I haven't felt lied to. I don't understand some of his choices, but I am open to waiting to see what happens. I still fully support Obama and am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. In my heart, I don't see that he would give jobs to people who he doesn't believe are qualified after seeing what that had done for Bush (Katrina).

    So Obama promises to bring in fresh blood, yet, his current nominations hardly reflect such a transfusion of new blood. Instead, he's hiring Clinton retreads.

    And you don't think this represents a complete reversal of his promises to do away with the insiders, to not play politics as usual?

    You're fooling yourself. Waiting to see what happens doesn't change the fact that Obama has completely reversed himself.

    Okay. That's your opinion. I was merely giving you my opinion.

    Your opinion is a total duck. Waiting to see what happens is not at all relevant to the question of Obama's promises to bring in fresh blood. You're just kicking the can down road and deluding yourself.

    That you could not/would not argue that this or his other nominations are not deviations from his promises kinda reveals what you're really doing.

    And, yes, that is my opinion of your opinion.
