So in the spirit of change, Obama's first cabinet choice is former Clinton White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Looks to me like Obama "be payin' dem Clinton's day reparations". So much for change in this selection. And I thought Obama was the bigger pimp, but Barry's administration is getting ganked, as in stolen, no more like taken. I guess Slick Willie is saying, "Barry, you still my biotch".
In helping to select Clinton's, I mean, Obama's cabinet, Obama has enlisted the support of John Podesta who, like Emanuel, is a former top aide to President Clinton. If these are the spoils of Clinton cronies, I can't wait to see what Bill and Hillary get. Hmmm...how about Europe?
Pundits write that "unlike most previous presidential election winners, who spent weeks huddled with advisers before announcing their Cabinet and White House team, Mr Obama is anxious to hit the ground running…".
I certainly heard the thud, when Obama hit the ground, but he wasn't running. He fell out of bed from his dream, soon-to-be nightmare. Can you say, "the Clintons are calling the shots?"
Jeremy Gaunt validates my thoughts in an article where he says, "Obama, who bested Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, has made it clear he will rely heavily on veterans of her husband's eight-year administration, the only Democratic presidency in the past 28 years.
Podesta was President Clinton's chief of staff, and several other former Clinton aides are on Obama's short lists for key jobs, Democratic officials say. Some helped write a large briefing book on how to govern, assembled under Podesta's supervision."
I think this presidency has the real potential to bring back a circa 60s mantra with slight modification: "Black power!…with White supervision".
That's my rant!
