Change we can believe in

What is this change? Hillary Clinton! The New York Times informs us:
Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to give up her Senate seat and accept the position of secretary of state, making her the public face around the world for the administration of the man who beat her for the Democratic presidential nomination, two confidants said Friday.
As time passes it becomes more and more obvious that the Obama administration is going to be... just like all the other Democratic administrations. Turns out the change we are supposed to believe in is really the federal government under the control of Democratic politicians. The Democratic campaign slogan should be: "believe in the power of the federal government to solve your problems".

Not surprising. I mean, all administrations reach back to previous administrations for help. Heck, George W reached all the way back to the Ford administration to get Rumsfeld.

Maybe it should surprise all the naive and ignorant ones who voted for "change". But me, I'm relieved he chose experienced people and not a bunch of yahoos. I may not like some of his picks, but at least they know what they are doing.
