Having the right people working for you is very important. It seems Obama will be aided by an experienced staff. What do you think of his staff choices?
Wait a minute I read on this very forum that his cabinet will consist
of Aires, Wright, Farrakhan, and Bin Ladin if they can dig him out of his cave.
You mean alll that stuff I read on CD forum isn't true????

Hilary is running again for Prez after Obama's 8 years are over, she wasn't interested in a seat on his staff. She did an interview on this. She isn't the kind of girl that needs a hand out, she has her own accomplishments and plans for the future. She wants bigger things for herself.

I'm hoping there's a spot for Hilary also - or that he offers her a position, regardless of whether she takes it or not.
I think having Schwarzenegger on his staff will serve him well. Schwarzenegger is a well-respected republican -- one of the few that are popular with young and old voters. What remember about him in particular is he did what few politicians ever do -- admitting he was wrong an apologized to the voters. He would be a huge asset to Obama.

As the for the Clintons' possible involvement, some of their former staff will work for Obama. That we know. Also, I could see a minor role for their daughter Chelsea Clinton.

I would hope Obama looks outside DC for his cabinet and staff, but I think he'll be led into making some bad choices and go with yes men and yes women, party liners.
I remember watching an interview of Hillay Clinton on CNN a few weeks back (or perhaps reading it on newsweek?), when she was asked pointedly if she would accept a supreme court justice nomination from Obama. She said "absolutely not" and would prefer to stay as a senator. I think her plan is to become a pain in the butt for Obama from her senate seat, which I think is not a bad idea.

Next choice?

Hillary should be Senate Majority Leader. Get rid of Harry Reid. And Dennis Kucinich for Speaker of the House.
