This from the BBC:
Barack Obama has started forming his administration by asking Rahm Emanuel, a former adviser to President Clinton, to be his chief-of-staff.
So that’s who Obama will put in the single most sensitive position in his White House and that is who will form the rest of the Obama team for “change”.
I can’t wait to hear the rest of the names…..
I am steaming.
A betrayal, so soon… too soon.
I am shocked – yes, the cynical me – is shocked to my core.
US: Record number of Jews elected to Congress
A quote – “It’s a lot to ask – we had an incredible night with Obama, we had the other pickups in the House and Senate and we should be very grateful,” said Ira Forman, executive direction of the National Jewish Democratic Council.
why would anyone be surprised after his speech to AIPAC etc.? Even if he turns down the job (unlikely) – Obama is going to take many more such steps. Yeah, of-course this is a “slap in the face” of those who voted for Obama thinking he was different… but this who he is… And this is just day one.
