The following post is a YFNN rant. You may find it offensive, crude or just plain wrong. Get over it.
How many times did we hear from now-President-elect Obama that the Iraq war is poorly run, full of bad management decisions, and going horribly? All the time.
So, in order to rectify that problem, he sticks with the same guy that's been running it the whole time: Robert Gates.
In his cabinet so far, he's picking old school Dems that have been around Washington for years (Daschle, Clinton, Waxman...seriously?) and now keeping the existing Secretary of Defense, who's been the target of immense amounts of hatred from his own mouth.
Yessiree, Barack, you are definitely change we can believe in.
