All About the Policies


Though I might have chosen differently in one or two cases, overall, I’d say I’m very pleased with the announced or prospective nominees so far from Barack Obama. But for those who are more critical, I try to keep focusing everyone’s attention back on the salient point. With a strong president, appointees, particularly cabinet appointees execute policy. They work for the president. They execute his policies. I think we have a strong president. And unless and until I see policies that don’t square with the platform he ran on (which I don’t expect) I see no reason to revise that judgment.
