Now, we probably shouldnâ€™t jump on the guilt by association bandwagon (as Obamaâ€™s opponents were wont to do during the election), but there are significantly safer, more neutral, and more politically correct (forgive me) selections for an inaugural companion. And this news of the Warren selection is right on the heels of other questionable behavior by Obama â€” notably, his cabinet choices. Having a cabinet and set of advisors that even Cheney agrees with should send up little red flags all over America.
Someone should ask Obama about what part of â€œchangeâ€ we must have misunderstood. Is this country about to be run by the old administration in sheepâ€™s clothing?
