"Forget Cabinet of rivals; this is a Clinton revival"

At first, it seems the Post is lamenting Obama's collection of Clinton cronies in his cabinet:

He promised to bring change to Washington, but so far, Barack Obama's early administration lineup looks like a Clinton White House class reunion.

But, no! The Post says this a good thing!

By surrounding himself with Beltway veterans who know the ins and outs of Washington, it should be easier for Obama to push through his agenda.

So, paradoxically, the best way to effectuate change is by doing things the same way.

  1. Considering his rhetoric of change seemed to mask the fact that his actual proposals amounted to beefing up programs that already exist. He is probably right to just appoint the same old gang of crooks.
