In the three weeks following the election, most of the news surrounding President-elect Obama (other than the potential First Puppy) is who will be serving as his advisors and in his cabinet.
A major theme of Mr. Obama's campaign was to bring change to Washington D.C., and more specifically, to the government. So is it ironic or intelligent that many of the presumed cabinet choices are Washington insiders?
Hillary Clinton may become the Secretary of State. The likely choice for the Attorney General served as Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton White House. Tom Daschle was a party leader among senate democrats while he was in office, and he may become the secretary of Health and Human Services. These are people who don't embody bringing change to Washington.
However, they bring experience. Is that better? Does it matter?
