Okay…I get it. Barack Obama is keeping with his new era of reform thing.
He met with Sen. Hillary Clinton and may make her his Secretary of State…
And, now he meets with Republican rival John McCain who apparently has pledged his cooperation with the President-elect.
But while all this window dressing is nice–it is, at the end of the day–window dressing.
For all the talk of change, many of Obama’s advisers–understandably–had some connection with the Clinton administration. It was always obvious that Obama would need to turn to these people to get the support and expertise he will need. But the pretense that he would bring fresh,new faces and thinking to Washington was clearly designed to win the election. Now that he’s got the job, it’s politics as usual in D.C.
I keep reading that critics are waiting to catch Obama in his first false move. I would suggest that they already have.
