    HRC as Sec State and other Clintonistas infiltrating Obama's administration
    Here was my response yesterday to a question about the possibility of Evita becoming Sec. State :

    Evita as Sec State is still rumor . Last I heard the Obama camp was vetting her. But there could be a problem because Bill Clintoon has made lots of $$$ from questionable sources in the Middle East.

    Another rumor I heard was that Obama and McCain got together to discuss the possibility of McCain being Sec Defense.

    The only people he has hired so far is White House Staff .Rham Emanuel will be Chief of Staff .Pete Rouse will serve as Senior Advisor, He is former chief of staff to former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle. Both Mona Sutphen and Jim Messina will serve as Deputy Chief of Staff. Phil Schiliro, a former chief of staff to Representative Henry Waxman, was named yesterday as assistant to the president for legislative affairs.Ron Klain, a former chief of staff for Vice President Al Gore, was named to the same post for Vice President-elect Joe Biden. Greg Craig, a lawyer who represented Bill Clintoon during his impeachment proceedings, has been chosen as Obama's White House counsel.Valerie Bowman Jarrett will serve as his Sr. Adviser and Assistant to the President for intergovernmental relations. Jarrett will be Obama’s contact with external groups and elected officials at all levels of government.

    With the exception of Jarrett all the people mentioned are Washington insiders. Jarrett is part of the Daley Machine in Chi-town.

    Yeah ;what kind of change is that ?

    As far as cabinet goes ;I don't think Obama would have any issues getting Evita approved for Sec State if that is where he chooses to go. Between her and McCain he could shut off that phone because he would not need lose any sleep over that 3AM call :rolleyes: But if I were him I'd pick Richardson .

    Other possibilities mentioned for Defense : Richard Danzig, Chuck Hagel, former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, and former NATO Commander Wesley Clark.

    Others named for possible Sec State :Former Rep. Lee Hamilton of 9-11 Commission fame and Republican Richard Lugar.

    Economist Lawrence Summers,is a potential pick as Treasury secretary. He would appeal to both Dems because he served in the Clintoon adm. ;and Republicans because he is a free market kind of guy.. But Obama could face opposition from feminist groups who are still smarting from comments he made that innate characteristics may prevent women from achieving more prominence in science. when he was President of Harvard.

    Other possible Treasury:Henry Paulson already serving in the position .Timothy Geithner a Clintonoid Rober Rubin protégé . Laura Tyson, former chairwoman of the White House National Economic Council and the Council of Economic Advisers under Clintoon.

    Beginning to get the picture ? An Obama adm. Will not be very different from the Clintoon reign. :eek:

    Hello tom:

    Well, it's a rather BIG change from the dufus admin to an Obama admin.

    Ohhhh, you thought he was going to change from being a Democrat... No, silly. Bwa, ha ha ha.

    Besides, the Clinton people ran a pretty good government, no?? Surplus and all that stuff that you conservatives NEVER heard of...

    Bwa, ha ha ha, again.

    Clintoon left as the economy was collapsing all around him... or did you forget the tech and dot com bubble bust ? The Dot-com bubble crash wiped out $5 trillion in stock value starting March 2000 .Did you forget the 2000 Clinton recession ?

    Maybe you forget energy tzar Bill Richardson going to Saudi Arabia February 1999 begging them to increase the price of crude... That's right you read that correctly... He did not think we were paying enough so he went to Saudi Arabia to negotiate an increase in price for American consumers and business.

    And lets not forget that the seeds for the current crisis was sown during the Clintoons reign.

    They are not "inflitrating" anything. They are "in" on the gag. It's us, the poor, pathetic taxpaying public who's going to pay for all this supposed change. Change what? Change left in our pockets (that is if we still have our pants left) is what we're going to have. It's the sheeple vs. the sheep shears. Guess who's going to win? Not the sheeple.

    Think about it During the campaign , Obama argued that his lack of foreign-policy experience didn't matter because he showed better judgment on the issues than the foreign-policy establishment of both parties. The main evidence of his judgement was his early opposition to the Iraq war.

    So who does Obama turn to when he starts hiring people for major positions in his administration? Joe Biden even though Biden voted for the Iraq war. Rahm Emanuel , even though Emanuel supported the war and says he would've voted for it even if he knew there were no weapons of mass destruction. And now Evita for secretary of state, even though she voted for the Iraq war. There is talk that he is seriously considering John McCain for Defense Sec. a famous supporter of both the war and the surge.
    Evita and Biden should demand an apology from him for the things he said about them during the primaries.

    Add another Clintonista to the mix, Eric Holder, the deputy AG under Janet Reno and the guy that approved the pardon of Marc Rich has supposedly been offered the AG spot. Yeah buddy, Hopenchange is coming. LOL.

    "The James Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' was No. 1 at the box office -- $70 million. Quantum of Solace? Doesn't that sound like one of Barack Obama's new cabinet members? 'Hi, I'm Barack. This is Rahm Emanuel. And our new man Quantum of Solace.'"-Jay Leno

    Not only did Holder "vette " the Marc Rich pardon (he swears if he knew then what he knows now it never would've happened... yada yada ) ;but he is also a player in some other notable events in the Clintoon reign.
    He was Clintoons impeachment lawyer and he was deeply involved as the lawyer to Juan Miguel Gonzalez ;the father of Elian Gonzalez whose abduction and shanghaiing to the Stalinist Cuba by Reno's INS storm-troopers could not have occurred without Holder's efforts.
