Obama has named Gregory B. Craig, Bill Clinton’s former lawyer from the impeachment hearings, as White House General Counsel. Craig also succeeded in taking Elion Gonzalez back to Cuba, and represented Kofi Annan in the UN Oil-for-Food scandal.
The Obama administration is looking more and more like the Bill Clinton administration. Of the 47 appointees named as of November 14, 2008, to transition or staff posts, 31 have ties to the Clinton administration, including all but one member of the 12-person Transition Advisory Board.
Some change. Hardly worth waiting for.
