Hope? Change? (Liberal) Politics as usual...

Here is yet another sign that Barack Obama is not interested in a new kind of politics. He is no different than every other liberal Democrat that has come down the road, except that he is smooth talking, serious, level headed and looks and sounds great on TV. Now he is surrounding himself with the old guard of the party...

WASHINGTON – Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has accepted President-elect Barack Obama's offer to be Secretary of Health and Human Services, Democratic officials said Wednesday.

The appointment has not been announced, but these officials said the job is Daschle's barring an unforeseen problem as Obama's team reviews the background of the South Dakota Democrat. One area of review will include the lobbying connections of his wife, Linda Hall Daschle, who has done representation mostly on behalf of airline-related companies over the years. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorize to discuss the matter publicly.

Tom Dascle as secretary of HHS. Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. What should be apparent to anyone is exactly what I have been saying all along, that Barack Obama is an empty suit that was handpicked and used by the American Left. Now that he is the "President-Elect", the old school liberals are coming out of the woodwork to take the reins of power and push through the agenda that they failed to enact for decades.

I wonder if Obama realizes that he is being played or if he even cares as long as he gets to "make history"?

(By the way, I love the seal with "The Office of the President-Elect" on it. Is it just me or is there no such thing as the office of the President-Elect? He doesn't even hold the office yet but is already having tons of press conferences and they are running approval polls. The people in this country are in for a rude shock when the day after the inauguration, the economy still is in the can and the world is still full of dangerous people and he has no plan to fix it)
