Clinton-Lite: The Brew Without the Bill.
Change is coming! Change is coming! Change is the mantra that has been communicated to us over the last year or so during Barack Obama’s improbable rise to become President-elect. The question to ask, of course, is a play on those words – “Is change really coming?”
Over the past five weeks, Obama has put together a team that is very close to being termed as “Clinton-lite” – all of the taste of the Clinton Administration but none of the Bill. All I need to complete the transition back to 1993 is a DeLorean equipped with a flux capacitor.
I expected, and hoped for, more from Barack Obama. According to Merriam-Webster’s, one of the definition of change means “to undergo transformation, transition, or substitution” – it is a missed opportunity that our country is getting a substitution instead of a transformation.
