New Blood

Like Booman, I was pleased that I wasn't familiar with a lot of names on Obama's transition team. My unfamiliarity doesn't necessarily tell me much about them, but I think a benefit of an Obama versus a Clinton administration is that there will at least be some new blood in town. Not saying everyone he hires or should hire will be Washington outsiders, but we'll at least see a reshuffling of the Washington deck a bit. I'm sure we'll be seeing plenty of former Clintonites in power, but they won't all be the same Clintonites we've been seeing all these years, if that makes sense.
