The man is a jerk. I don't like him and I don't like his politics. I could write something here about the political expediency of such a choice. I could explain in detail why it might be part of a larger plan. In the end, though, it's the first thing that the man I spent 2 years trying to get elected asked me to do that was unpalatable. I don't give Obama carte blanche, however, he's gonna need to go further than this to get me to Turn my back on a choice he made.
Yes, I don't like it. This guy is trying to heal rifts not create them. I HOPE it isn't the last thing he asks me to do, that I dislike, to CHANGE how the standard cyclical BS works here in America.
