Okay maybe it’s change… but it’s a few steps backwards. His cabinet picks read like a who’s who of the 90’s, a center right shift to friends of Bill Clinton. And, Instead of calling his appointees Washington insiders, the President Elect calls them Washington experience. So much for “Change” … maybe “Hope” will do better… make sure you know what you’re wishing for… (and voting for)
Secretary of State -> Hillary Clinton (Former First Lady, Junior New York Senator and Serious Presidential Primary Contender)
Secretary of Health and Human Services -> Tom Daschle (Former Democratic Senate Majority Leader)
Secretary of Commerce -> Gov. Bill Richardson (Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, appointed by Former President Bill Clinton)
Chairmen of Economic Recovery Advisory Board -> Paul Volcker (Former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Appointed by Former President Jimmy Carter)
Secretary of Defense-> Robert Gates (Current Secretary of Defense Appointed by President Bush)
Secretary of Homeland Security -> Gov. Janet Napolitano (Former Bill Clinton Appointee)
That’s the first half – the President Elect hasn’t leaked/announced the second half of his Cabinet yet.
