    Default Change? Really??????

    The more things "change," the more they remain the same.

    My question - Don't we have someone besides people with Law degrees capable of doing these jobs? Lawyers provide few value added solutions to any issue. They are not, by profession, capable of establishing a principled stand & sticking with it.

    TBS - I recognize it is imperative that those appointed are capable administrators, government is not the easiest maze to navigate. Experience does help, but aren't there experienced individuals of other professions available?

    But, we had O'Neil, Snow & Paulsen for Treasury Secretary's in the Bush Admin, with only Snow having some government experience. Look at what that bought us!!!

    If the most influential people in Obama's administration will be just more of the same old career politicians, how is this change? Same old "good ole boys" group exchanging favors for each other

    The reason we have so many lawyers is that they are experts in dancing on the head of a pin. In other words, they spent their years in law school learning how to make a speech that says absolutely nothing while the audience believes they heard what they want to believe. Our president elect is a prime example -- people heard what they wanted to believe, not what he actually said.

    It came down to voting for hope or voting for fear and hope won out...

    While I feel you've grossly oversimplified the process and the end result Joe, I pray that the "hope" that you say "won out" truly produces a "winning" result.

    Hope is NOT a strategy regards,

    OK...but in the end, that is exactly what it came down to for at least me. Did I want to vote for someone who was telling me that it can get better if we all work together or did I want to vote for someone who spent the last several weeks of the campaign telling me why I should be afraid of the other guy.

    Fear Is NOT A Long Term Solution Regards,

    That doesn't sound like an educated decision to me.....but then again, most that pulled that lever hadn't a clue of what they were voting for.

    At no time did J McCain try to instll the fear of voting for Obama. If anything, he maintained the high road throughout his campaign. Me thinks you've been listening to too much Hannity and Limbaugh!
