If they had a serious intellectual candidate he might give them more information and material to be serious about.

And this to they shall ignore in their humor and good natured approach to politics:

Obama, Once a Leader at Harvard Law, Is Now a Favorite of Academe - Chronicle.com

The editors of the law journal "saw him as a coalescing force around which they could come together and do high-quality work," Mr. Ogletree says. "He was able to gently steer them without anyone feeling compromised or undermined in their views."

Mr. Obama, 46, is often described as professorial in style, apt to delve into the complexities of topics and more adept at engaging in lengthy policy discussions than in producing sound bites. In fact, he has worked in college classrooms, serving since 1993 as a senior lecturer on constitutional law at the University of Chicago (he is now on leave from that job).

Mr. Obama's supporters, though, say his stance is evidence of the open-minded, intellectual approach he would take to the presidency. As he demonstrated at Harvard, Mr. Obama's strengths as a leader include his ability to engage people who hold various viewpoints, scrutinize their ideas, and forge rational solutions, says John K. Wilson, a student of Mr. Obama's at Chicago who recently wrote Barack Obama: This Improbable Quest (Paradigm).

"In the best sense of the word," Mr. Wilson says, "he would be a professor president

So perhaps this is the intellectual conceptualization of what his cabinet might look like.

Personally I don't see anything about W being representative about the people, him being a white, priveleged man from a wealthy family.

He was a drunk and did drugs, and his wife killed somebody. In my neighborhood, they'd fit right in.

Ole Barrack Hubbard went to his cupboard and found his cabinet bare.
He looked and looked for quality but somehow it just wasn't there.
What have I done, he cried in pain.
We would have been better off with McCain.
