New Team

One reason for my Obama leaning ways is that it's time to get some new blood into the Washington permanent floating ruling class system. I was never bothered by the personal element of the Clinton "dynasty." That is, I wasn't bothered by having another Clinton in office. But I was concerned with the ossification of the elite class structure in Washington. I was bothered not by the return to power of the Clintons, but by the return to power of Clintonites. I'm tired of seeing the same damn people on the teevee.

It isn't as if Obama's going to bypass official Washington entirely, of course. But he'll reshuffle the deck a bit. The Village won't change as much as I'd like, but it will change a bit.
