A thread worth following on the Vermont Commons site.
I usually give a new President at least a month in office before I start dissing him; that's just part of my fundamental fairness. But Obama's cabinet has been a real disappointment. The economic team are all persons who were involved one way or another with the crash. And the effort appoint a lobbyist for the pharmaceutical companies to head Health and Human Services was a real shocker. Everybody was down on Daschle for his taxes; I would have put up with the taxes if it wasn't for the source of his income.
