Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Quick Thought

I have no problem if Obama keeps Defense Secretary Gates around for a little bit as a token gesture – he’ll still have to do what the President asks.

But it’s amazing to me just how pervasive the notion is that Obama must make these bi-partisan gestures. Talking to some people yesterday, they all thought it would be a “magnanimous and tremendous” gesture for Obama to keep Gates and a couple Republicans around in the cabinet.

Does anyone remember this talk being so pervasive when Republicans took over?
