Brad at Sadly No is Sadly naive.
he doesn't understand that Obama plans to destroy the Republican party by appointing Republican Senators to the Cabinet.
He writes stuff. I reply.
You don't get it. Don't worry, Bill Clinton didn't get it and he is a genius. Senators are very powerful. Cabinet (some)ecretaries have power somewhere between that of the average secretary (lots if their boss is dumb) and that of the average cabinet (made of wood noticed only if it catches on fire). Clinton's worst mistake was making Senator Lloyd Bentson (D-Tex) a mere secretary and giving his very precious seat to Kay Baily Forehead.
Now Nebraska and Indiana are not promising territories for Democrats, but you know semi Democrat Ben Nelson represents Indiana.
The name of the game is "get to 60" and any means are fair. Obama plans to play to win.
OK OK he should appoint Olimpia to be UN embassatrix and Collins (if, heaven forfend, she is re-elected) embassatrix to the moon, but he can't be too obvious.
