Change you can make believe in
If you've been promising "change" -- and you might have noticed the Obamessiah has mentioned it once or twice -- then why would you have just put together a cabinet comprising a combination of Clinton and Bush Administration time-servers? Any why, when Bush was so despised and Iraq was a primary election issue, would you have left Bush's defence secretary in place?
The answer is clear enough, says Myrhaf. "By Obama’s thinking, he is already a successful president, even though he does not take office until January 20th, 2009."
