    the corporate experience, especially with oil companies and banks, makes me fear the worst. Obama's choices depress me, as I want to like and trust him, but each day there is new evidence that behind the charming front there is one more politician like the others before him.  The combination of protecting our natural resources and using them for business has usually resulted in the environment being abused, even if the business person involved likes to hike.  So, with all the experienced environmentalists available, Obama's pick of a business person with an outdoor hobby scares me.  For this to come at the same time as we find he is trying to develop a legal basis for drone murders (which sounds a lot like the Bush legal basis for torture) is too much for me to try to accept. Not that I really think any longer that he cares what a progressive thinks.

      What's the use of electing more Democrats if they're not better Democrats? Elect BETTER Democrats and the MORE will take care of itself.
