Salient Quote, National Security:
Now Obama’s says that on his first day in office he will begin to “design a plan for a responsible drawdown,” as he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. Obama has also filled his national security positions with supporters of the Iraq war: Sen. Hillary Clinton, who voted to authorize force in Iraq, as his secretary of state; and President George W. Bush’s defense secretary, Robert Gates, continuing in the same role
Salient Quote, Economic Policy:
It’s that liberal Democrats say they’re hard-pressed to find one of their own on Obama’s team so far – particularly on the economic side, where people like Tim Geithner and Lawrence Summers are hardly viewed as pro-labor.
Good, Labor bosses have driven many of American Manufacturing jobs into the ground and resulted in poorer quality products.
I'll continue to look skepticaly at Obama, but for a Democrat who ran as Obama did during the campaign; so far so good.
