i have not liked Lanny Davis at all this election season. the guy hated on Obama and tried to cast him in a negative light every chance he got. that being said, his snippet from the article you link is pretty appropriate:
Lanny Davis, President Clinton's former special council, lobbied publicly for Obama to choose Sen. Hillary Clinton as his running mate during the campaign. Despite what critics say, Davis says real change is about policy, not people.
"What this conversation is about is laughable if you ask people in America what they care about. They care about the economy, jobs, education, health care. They don't care about whether somebody who fills a particular box is from a prior administration," he said.
not true Lanny . . . the vast majority of people fall into the group you label as Americans who are concerned about issues, this is true. but there are still some who only seem to care about the people Obama is selecting in an attempt to tear him down.
yeah, she's been an awesome governor. plus, she supported Obama way back in January when the race was still thought to be Hillary Clinton's to lose . . . Kathleen Sebelius, gov. of Kansas, also jumped on the Obama bandwagon very early. she's a popular Dem governor in Kansas and also won reelection there. i wouldn't be surprised to see her wind up in the Obama admin as well. some people even had her as a finalist as a running mate for Obama.
Kathleen Sebelius, I think would have been Obama's running mate but he couldn't have picked a woman as that would have piissed off many Clinton supporters, and he couldn't have picked Clinton as that would have been political suicide.
I think Sebelius is a good choice.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
C'mon folks. You know that the new administration is already sunk. I mean, Obama has been in a no-win situation all along. He could get himself a cast of all new folks and be accused of surrounding himself with wet behind the ears neophytes; or he could get himself a cast of folks with experience (which for Dems means Clintonistas) and be accused of surrounding himself with retreads. Honestly, how stupid of the American people not to elect McCain and have a really good set of choices for the cabinet. I mean, I'd love to see Gonzales back in office. And Lord oh Lord I salivate at the thought of Rummy back at Defense. Pavlov would be proud. What a lost opportunity!

McCain, SchmaCain... If Bloomberg could lobby himself into a third term. why not Bush? Think of the ink the newspapers could save publishing those single-digit approval ratings. Think of all the Gitmo detainees Cheney could have taken hunting. Think of how few germs would be spread by even fewer world leaders shaking Bush's hand. Why bother with a Bush wanabe when we could have had the real deal?
