Default Gates stays

Quote:
CHICAGO (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama will keep Defense Secretary Robert Gates in that job for at least a year, according to an official familiar the two men's discussions.
Obama is expected to announce the selection of Gates and other members of a national security brain trust next week. Gates has served as President George W. Bush's defense chief for two years.
Gates, a moderate with long-standing ties to Republican administrations and the Bush family, would fulfill an Obama pledge to include a Republican in his Cabinet.
Retaining Gates provides stability for a stretched military fighting two wars during the turbulent changeover in administrations. Gates once said it was inconceivable that he would stay on past the close of Bush's term on Jan. 20.
But the 65-year-old former spymaster had recently turned mum in public on the circumstances under which he would stay, even briefly, in an Obama administration.
Keeping Gates might afford Obama a sort of extended transition, in which critical military issues are left in trusted hands while Obama focuses most intensely on the financial crisis.
Wasn't there a time when Barry was promising to end this and that and do things different and we can't have more bush/mccain and blah blah blah. Well, this is at least good news that he realized, finally, and begrudgingly, that there are some things that he just can't fuck up right away.

I gotta admit, I'm not seeing all that hope and change lunacy in action. Wonder what's going to happen when the luny congress starts ripping into him along with all the unions, lobby's, environuts and special interest groups he promised everything and then some to.

So far, Obama has proved that he's more about "the same" than most President-elects have been in the past. So how is this "change"?
