If the new administration is going to be all about “change” how come I keep seeing the same last names popping up?
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden will not accept an appointment to the Senate to replace his father, according to knowledgeable state sources, a decision that scrambles the race to to replace the vice president-elect in the Senate next year.
It seems the biggest reason he won’t take the job isn’t because it smacks of nepotism but because he’s about to deploy to Iraq for a year.
Yeah, those are some real fresh faces the Democrats are bringing to the table. The way the new administration is going, you’d think there weren’t any Democrats out there except relatives, old Clinton cronies, and some folks from the campaign that are owed a few favors.
In other related news, it appears that Joe Liberman won’t be tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. Don’t expect him to play a role in the Obama White House, but at least he doesn’t ahve to sit in the corner and wear a dunce cap for not showing proper party loyalty.
