  •  Head vs. Advisor (0+ / 0-)

    It seems that some here do not know the difference between "Head" and "Advisor."

    Here's a quick primer:

    Head: Makes decisions and does stuff

    Advisor: Suggests to others how they might want to make decisions, and then hopes they do stuff

    It is not entirely illogical to argue that somehow there is a benefit for her to have her "foot in the door.." [Hey, at least Geithner can't arrest her for trespassing!]

    But comments which suggest that we are not all thumbs up and high-fiving each other.. seem to be missing the point.

    And to pre-empt comments such as "you lot will always end up bashing the administration...", please be reminded that many of us lot were Obama's loudest supporters not that long ago, and would dearly love to be clapping along. I was high-fiving and bodyslamming my friends when Obama won.. and would love to do so again.. Here's what I said when I believed the news that Obama had appointed Warren as Interim Head:

    For what it's worth, the Obama admin can now consider this individual microcomponent of his base officially re-energized. More cautious than after the election, and lots more to do.. but (assuming this remains true all the way to her having her new name cards printed and kicking some butt..) re-energized nonetheless..
