I find this news a bit puzzling, especially coming from the left wing of the Democratic party.
Maybe they want Andrew Cuomo instead?
And to the point of liberals being a bit too vocal too early, here’s Steve Hildebrand about this today…
This is not a time for the left wing of our Party to draw conclusions about the Cabinet and White House appointments that President-Elect Obama is making. Some believe the appointments generally aren’t progressive enough. Having worked with former Senator Obama for the last two years, I can tell you, that isn’t the way he thinks and it’s not likely the way he will lead. […] After all, he was elected to be the president of all the people – not just those on the left.
As a liberal member of our Party, I hope and expect our new president to address those issues that will benefit the vast majority of Americans first and foremost. That’s his job. Over time, there will be many, many issues that come before him. But first let’s get our economy moving, bring our troops home safely, fix health care, end climate change and restore our place in the world. What a great president Barack Obama will be if he can work with Congress and the American people to make great strides in these very difficult times.
In other words, CHILL OUT. Obama hasn’t even been inaugurated yet.
