Barack Obama campaigned on "changing" Washington. He was going to be a new kind of politician (just like every President before him). It was going to be a new day in Washington.
It turns out that no matter how much things change, they still seem to stay the same. I'm not going to spend a lot of time on this obvious lie. If I were to talk about Obama's lies during the campaign it would take too long and I just don't have the energy today.
What I do find interesting is the reaction in the media to this flip flop. I'm not talking about the MSM here, we expect this. He could fart at a G-20 summit while making a speech and the Chris Matthew's of the media would fall even deeper in love with him and how adorable he is.

WASHINGTON — For months on the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to bring change to Washington. But now that he's president-elect, his first potential Cabinet picks indicate that he may bring more years of Washington experience to his administration than Bill Clinton or George W. Bush did.
Obama's first four likely Cabinet choices, including former first lady Hillary Clinton, have a combined total of more than 60 years of Washington experience.
By comparison, President Bush's first four Cabinet picks had a total of 30 years experience in Washington, and former President Clinton's had 58.
So now it's not retreading the same old tired Washington elites. With Obama, it's bringing in "experienced" people. In fact this genius is bringing in people with twice the experience of George Bush, isn't he just amazing.
