I guess I'm just disappointed more about the conduct of the Obama selection process. I know he isn't personally choosing Kennedy as Hillary's replacement for her New York senate seat, but he is the new party leader and if he asks Patterson to appoint her its a done deal. I heard Caroline on the tube again yesterday, I mean she was asked some very simplistic questions that only required a one or two sentence response to clarify her stance, she just jabbered on repeating adverbs and useless adjectives that had little to no meaning in helping to clarify her posture on the issues brought to her. Instead she mimicked the same Palin style of beating around the bush, for a person of her perceived magnitude, she does not come across as a political wonk, her sound bites are pathetic and her looks project weakness, where strength and confidence are going to be key essentials to win the battles that besiege Americans today. From the bottom of my heart, I loved JFK.
Now to make matters worse there is a scandalous trail on Obama's coat tails leading from Illinois to the White House, besides the apparent quid pro quo favor to Ted Kennedy, to the disgraced Illinois Governor Blogoyavych appointment to the senate to replace Obama's seat, now top cabinet appointment Gov. Bill Richardson (commerce secretary) appointee has to pull out because he is allegedly involved in some pay for play bid scandals, nice job the Obama vetting team has done. The Obama administration won't begin for another 2 weeks, and no one knew of the upcoming charges. Seriously nothing is changing or will change its dirty politics as usual. Yes I am still awaiting some progressive intellectuals that I thought along with millions of others thought would become appointments to this administration. So far Obama has shunned the progressive left wing and gays, two large groups that had a role in his gaining this election.
