Obama’s proposed cabinet appointments

Observing president-elect Obama’s preparation for taking office, the classic political scenario seems to be playing out: campaign with one set of strategies against his own party’s opponents in the primaries, then tack in another strategic direction against the other party in the general election, and finally, once elected, become the pawn of political reality.

Count me as one of those who warned about the choices and policies that would manifest based on Obama’s campaign rhetoric and historical liberal leaning. But I would be less than candid if I didn’t acknowledge the pragmatic and reasoned process that seems to have been followed in making the cabinet choices announced thus far by Mr. Obama..

Today I had another outstanding interview with that great American, Governor Pete du Pont. We talked about this early Obama behavior and the various implications; giving credit where credit is due but still concerned about the president-elect’s plans for nationalizing our healthcare system. Take a few minutes to listen — Gov. du Pont’s wisdom never disappoints.
