Not Carter II, but Clinton III

I initially thought the Obama administration was going to be like revisiting the Jimmy Carter administration; however, instead it's looking like a third Clinton administration.

Look at a sampling of the Clintonistas who've been selected by Obama for his team:
  • Hillary Clinton as Sec State
  • Leon Paneta, Clinton Chief of Staff as head of the CIA
  • Lawrence Summers, Clinton Treasury Sec as head of Nat'l Economic Council
  • Rahm Emmanuel, Clinton "senior advisor" as Obama Chief of Staff
  • Bill Richardson, Clinton Energy Sec as Obama Commerce Sec (before withdrawing)
It will be interesting to see if the culture of corruption and self-interest will be as egregious in an Obama administration as it was in Clinton's.
