The Hope and Change Cabinet: Introduction

It’s been said that you can know someone by the company they keep. Since our new President-elect has chosen not to reveal much about himself over the past 21 months of campaigning, we’ve had no alternative but to use this old axiom to try and define him. In that process, names like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, and Louis Farrakhan kept popping up.

In the interest of moving forward, though, let’s just pretend that didn’t happen. Let’s just look forward to our new President’s administration. Over the next few weeks will follow what I hope will be a series of investigations into the people that are being mentioned for the main cabinet posts. Maybe by seeing what they’re all about, we’ll get a clue to the character of the Enigma in Chief.
