What's a person to think? Change is what he promised.

Obama team repackaging Clinton after campaign digs

WASHINGTON – It wasn't too long ago that Barack Obama and his advisers were tripping over one another to tear down Hillary Rodham Clinton's foreign policy credentials. She was dismissed as a commander in chief wanna-be who did little more than sip tea and make small talk with foreign leaders during her days as first lady.
"What exactly is this foreign policy experience?" Obama said mockingly of the New York senator. "Was she negotiating treaties? Was she handling crises? The answer is no."

There are already at least three threads on this topic. I see no reason for a fourth.

Considering that he hasn't even been sworn in yet, I think I'll just wait awhile before declaring his presidency a failure.

Can you idiots please dedicate ONE thread to this foolish questioning of "CHANGE". I'm tired of reading these repeat threads.
It's getting very annoying, old and redundant.

The guy doesn't want to torpedo the country and his presidency by keeping promises he made to a bunch of screwballs who mostly voted out of whimsy. McCain would be doing the same thing.

The man is free to pick as he chooses for his cabinet. If they fail, or go against his campaign promises then its free game. Until that hand plays out it's hearsay.

He's appointed the same old Democrat Washington insiders that he bashed during his entire campaign. Former Clinton aides and far left wing think tank analysts is not political change or changing anything. Obama won becuase he got lucky. The economy tanked at just the right time. That is all.

What "far left think tank analysts" has he appointed?...names please.

Obama did not get "lucky", if you remember he led almost the entire time in the polls except for McCain's bump from the Republican Convention. At the time the economy tanked, that bump had already begun to fade.
