Obama's cabinet

So far I'm as annoyed as anyone at the media hand-wringing surrounding Obama's picks for his cabinet - "But he promised chaaaaange." Yes, he did. Call me a hopeless pragmatist, but I think change comes from intelligent, capable people and doesn't come from a bunch of know-nothing boobs running around like Keystone Cops throwing gasoline on every fire. Couldn't the bobbleheads just as easily focus on the contrast between Bush's appointment of clueless cronies and cynical partisan idealogues to Obama's appointment of apparently capable people? I know, stupid question.

Now, I don't love many of Obama's picks, but I won't profess to be an expert on any of them either. As for the Clinton appointment...I'm not sure about that one. My stance on that is officially wait-and-see. I suggest the pundits just simmer down and do the same. I know, stupid suggestion.
