Obama's Leaky Ship

Obama’s Cabinet—Daschle at HHS, Napolitano at Homeland Security, Holder at Justice, Clinton at State—is so well known, that it may come as a surprise to learn that none of these appointment have been officially announced. Obama’s tight control of his campaign “has all but dissolved in the leak-centric world of Washington,” The Washington Post reports. According to one lobbyist, “There is nothing they can do about it—vetting and FBI background checks require a lot of calls, and that leads to leaks.” Despite the loose control, “Democrats mindful of former president Bill Clinton's plodding 1992 transition are pleased with the rapid pace.”
