    For months on the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to bring change to Washington. But now that he's president-elect, his first potential Cabinet picks indicate that he may bring more years of Washington experience to his administration than Bill Clinton or George W. Bush did.

    Change can mean a change from the disastrous policies of George Bush. You can bet on that change.

    ==Bush pulled heavily from his father's administration and nobody can blame him for doing so. In the same way nobody can blame Obama for pulling from Clinton's administration. What about his campaign promises? Like most politicians he has forgotten those now that he has been elected. Nothing new, certainly not change. I have been pointing out for months that Obama is not "change we can believe in". At best he is, to quote Hillary Clinton, "change we can xerox".

    His election shows us once again how shallow the majority of voting Americans really are. Promise them what they want to hear and they will vote for you.

    How can Obama deliver on campaign promises when he isn't even in office yet?

    When you promise change, and make it obvious that you have no intention of delivering it, you are proper fodder for criticism.

    Well, it is change from the last 8 disasterous years and that has to be good. Obama's rise would never have happened if the last 8 years had not been so bad.

    Exactly, too many people were deceived into thinking this guy really meant change. Samo-samo; year after year. They are return to the Republicrat safety net.

    Do you really think that just because it is change it is good?

    I seen no change coming only a furtherance of the same disastrous spending and socialization that has been going on the last 8 years. The new neosoc in office will only exacerbate the current issues.

    I believe Obama won because many Americans, right or wrong, considered any change for the better. It could hardly get worse. Almost everything that the current aministration touched the last 8 years has led to one disaster after another. I truely believe that if the last 8 years had not been so bad that Obama would have remained a senator. This is not a criticism, but what I see as reality. I am not a prophet and do not know if this change will be good or not. I pray it will be good.b Only time will tell. I pay no attention to the Obama hating prophets nor to the Obama will bring paradise prophets. Let's wait several years before making too many judgements.

    So far I see no radial Communists or Socialists being named to governmental posts.

    It is a shame the Bush administration lost the vision they espoused before the 2000 election. Seeminly they had a good vision, but somehow, somewhere along the way lost it and disaster followed.
