    from the left. Don't think of it as attacking Obama, think of it as giving Obama cover to make more progressive appointments and policy choices.

    But this is not even a leftist criticism. Passing over people who got it right on Iraq, who spoke out against the abuses of the Bush administration, and instead giving positions to people who just went along... that is institutional, political suicide. That is murdering the movement that we worked hard to build. It's the very least we should demand from the incoming administration, to reward talent and honesty and not reward selfish, dishonest silence of people who condoned the desecration of our laws.

    •  Criticizing is one thing. (0+ / 0-)

      Calling all of Obama's appointments hacks is another.

      Also, what did that second paragraph have to do with my comment? I never said that these people shouldn't be rewarded.
