Change you can believe in! So he appoints a bunch of "Washington Insiders"Win. Absolute win.

Trobs, if he appointed a bunch of Washington outsiders you'd be complaining that none of them were qualified. People like you are never happy.

Reward your foes & punish your supporters?"If John Kerry was hoping to be part of President-elect Barack Obama's Cabinet, he'll almost certainly have to settle for the consolation prize: a powerful chairmanship in the U.S. Senate.The Massachusetts senator, who endorsed Obama early in the presidential campaign, was left out of the mix Monday when the president-elect announced his national security team, giving shape to two-thirds of his cabinet."

People like me huh?I believe in absolute freedom for the individual in this country. I believe our government is too large, too intrusive and dragging us into a debt we may never be able to repay. When a candidate runs on a campaign of change, I expect him/her to actually bring that change. Barack promised to use public funding, then back pedaled when he realized how much money he was making with the internet and it's wonderful anonymity. Same can be said for his policies. He wants to balance the budget, decrease middle class taxes and have massive spending increases. Sounds like the typical Washington way. Why find an actual solution when you can throw money at it. Who am I? I am an angry citizen that is sick and tired of candidates doing what they can to earn votes then fall back on promises. Even the night of the election Obama started trying to lower expectations. Jimmy Carter must have called him before the count was finalized. Qualifications mean NOTHING. Let me say it again. Just because you went to Harvard, you sat in a cushy government job for 10 years and you are friends with the most powerful man in the world, that does not even begin to prepare you for suddenly being a key player with the president. Nothing can prepare anyone for that. Honestly, I'd rather have people with a realistic grasp on the country in charge. The country is vastly different then Washington sees it the vast majority of the time.

Where's the button for "No, nothing Obama will do will satisfy me ever?"

Obama is appointing too many scumbag republicans and DINO's to his cabinet.

i'd like to see any of y'all do the job that he is preparing to do. i'd like to see any of y'all make some of the decision that he has to make. Dem/rep. Someone was willing is to take over and try to fix a mess and y'all still complaining. y'll need to start saying positive things and stop weighing his name down with negative talk. Give the man a chance..

R-I: I merely thought others might have a use for it. I'm reasonably satisfied so far.

I was hoping he would take Kathy and get her out of Kansas...

Waaaah! I'm a Republican. My president is revealed to be an incompetent, eight-year loser. So, when a brilliant man wins, and when he has the wisdom to fill his cabinet with very wise people, they're called "insiders." Laughing has never been easier. With these attitudes, that's all you can do. Now, for those of you who are acting like children: go sit in the corner and think about what you did. When you're grown up, you can come out. Whine, Baby, Whine!

Relax, ariadne, have a popsicle. It's a cool and fruity treat.

Semi-satisfied. Hillary Clinton has NO business as secretary of state. No experience and her personality isnot well suited to things diplomatic.I question Janet Napolitano. And the fact that Sebelius was under serious consideration is disturbing.
