I'm sure the oil companies will put some money into her political career up the road to push their agenda regarding Ms. Palin. They are already thinking about feeding her into the Senate race.

This is just the first of what I hope will be many smart choices made by Obama. A smart person will always surround themself with other smart people.

For some strange reason I doubt testicle cutting Rev Jesse will do very well with this new administration, lol.

I think it was a smart strategic move on BARACKO's part. He will make an excellent firewall.

What? The republicans lost? What a bunch of nut jobs you guys are. BUSH never did nor would anyone appoint or select an important aid other then a trsuted friend or person with like mind. You guys lose and want favors. The Chief of Staff is a job for a like minded person. I guess you think Joe the not a Plumber should be his Chief of Staff.

You lost, you get what you deserve in whatever pres Elect Obama does and be happy for it. Nasty complainers are all you nut jobs are, no real interest in America, just slogans, fake plumbers, and spend, spend, spend.

I know this article is about President-Elect Obama's Chief of Staff, but I've heard news reports of Sen. Kerry wanting to be Secretary of State. Obama would be wise to take a pass on Sen. Kerry, he isn't qualified since he lacks the required background. Simply being on the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee doesn't cut it.

For that matter George Washington was a terrorist too. All members of Irgun were considered terrorists by Great Britian as they were fighting for a free country in their ancient homeland. All Patriots too were considered traitors to Great Britian and the Boston Tea Party an act of terror. The odd thing is you guys who post trash last week were saying Obama was a synpathizer to a Palitinian terror organization and anti Israel. Today you try to claim a member of the freedom fighters for Israel is a terrorist and his son somehow is not a good fellow so Obama now is too pro Israel. The problem with making up tall tales is eventually you get caught in one lie after another. The lies of last month do seem a little less important now that Obama has won and the world has not ended.
