Obama: Now beltway experience is good

President-elect Barack Obama is on the defensive a bit over his appointments of Clinton-era people to his administration.
This quote was too amazing to pass up:

“What we are going to do is combine experience with fresh thinking,” Mr Obama said at his third press conference in as many days. He said he would be foolish, at such a “critical time in our history”, to pick people who “had no experience in Washington whatsoever”.

Please feel free to fill in the large blank that is left by that observation.
I recall someone saying Washington was the problem.

  1. On Dec 5 the Supreme Court will either allow or disallow the usurpation of both the Constitution and the Government of the United States — easily the most pivotal decision since our nation’s founding — and the silence of the news media is deafening (if not downright scary).

  2. You can teach an old dog new tricks, this isn’t any difference then bringing in a new ‘shake up’ CEO in a company. Do they fire EVERYONE at the executive? No, they get one new guy to prod the older guys around and get them to think differently. The person that’s new has the final say on all the decisions, that’s what I’m seeing here.
    I really don’t see how this is such a ‘gotcha’ or whatever you want to call it.

  3. And NO ONE saw this coming?????
    Really, there will be little to no difference between an Obama office and Clinton office – except for the fact that Hillary can now negotiate with China for money for us as SOS. How’s that for a fitting acronym?
    Since the last office drowned us in debt and joblessness.
