President-elect Barack Obama is on the defensive a bit over his appointments of Clinton-era people to his administration.
This quote was too amazing to pass up:
“What we are going to do is combine experience with fresh thinking,” Mr Obama said at his third press conference in as many days. He said he would be foolish, at such a “critical time in our history”, to pick people who “had no experience in Washington whatsoever”.
Please feel free to fill in the large blank that is left by that observation.
I recall someone saying Washington was the problem.
