    I have more of a wait and see attitude concerning who he appoints.
    I've noticed one thing, when it comes to cabinet appointees, I've seen him sacrifice ideology for experience and he can always ask for their resignation. But when it comes to appointments that count, like the Supreme Court, he combines qualifications with ideology very successfully.

      corporate policies. If America had wanted that she would have voted for Romney. The answer to the cabinet issue is better Democrats. There has to be qualified people out there who do not have the smell of corporate corruption surrounding them. This stuff only encourages cynicism. If we had wanted a pro Wall Street President Romney would have been the better choice. But Romney got his ass handed to him. Should that at least count for something?
