    It is interesting that Putin is probably going to be the president again, once the smoke clears after the change of the 4 year term for president to 6 years.

    This reminds me of Clinton in some ways. While he couldn't run for another term, Obama continues to nominate and hire ex-Clinton staffers to run his administration. If we wanted Clinton, than I submit that we should have voted for Billy-Boy!

    Let's hope that Obama doesn't hire Monica as a paid intern, they say, history oftens repeats itself, and that is what this new administration is looking like with each passing day.

    NOW, tell me, is that the "Change" 52% of America voted for??????:laugh:

    ...

    "The absorption of the Clinton government in waiting represents Obama's choice not to repeat what he and his advisors see as an early mistake made by the last two presidents: Attempting to wield power in Washington through an insular campaign apparatus new to town."

    ...

    " "Obama is showing great good sense in making use of their experience," said William Galston, a former Clinton domestic policy adviser who’s now at the Brookings Institution. "You have an entire cadre of people in their 30s and 40s and early 50s who were either in senior jobs or second- and third-tier jobs in the Clinton administration, who really earned their spurs and know their way around — and know something about how the institutions in which they served actually function."

    Galston noted that while Clinton shunned the remnants of the Carter Administration in 1992, Obama's Democratic predecessor led a popular eight-year administration, and the party is no longer riven by deep ideological splits.

    "The president-elect has the great good fortune of having a Democratic Party with a usable past," said Galston, who downplayed the differences between the Clinton and Obama camps during the primary. "It was never a substantive or an ideological split — it was more like Team A and Team B." "

    No it isn't. I don't see the connection.

    Wow !!! A former Clinton advisor is saying that using former Clinton people "is showing great good sense".

    Who would have ever thought !! :laugh:

    Maybe Galston is hoping for a call from Obama too.

    I hope that he does take the Clintonistas in. That means he will be for NAFTA, Open Boarders, Free S*x education from K up (remembering Jocelyn Elders), gay military service and all the slick willy antics. All the issues that KenH, LeBuick, Crabby et,al had said that they opposed that Obama opposed. You folks made your bed now sleep in it.

    If you think living in Russia is "quite comfortable" as it is here in the US, there are planes leaving every day, and Russia has a process to become a citizen. See ya around.

    You're one of the people that don't seem to like the United States these days. EWhy don't you take your own recommendation?


    AMERICA. LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.

    I do not see any connection that was attempted to be made in the op.
