Why The Clinton Retreads?

"Some Of The Guys Seeking Transition Jobs Were Just Scary"

Obama is having trouble finding decent people who want to work for him, so instead of hiring his apostles, he is hiring Clinton retreads.

I think we ought to be thankful for this, actually.

Still, I will laugh in his face. Get a load of the quotes in this article. 

"We aren't vetting people, in part because some of the people we thought might fill the transition oversight teams had other issues," complains an outside adviser to the Obama transition team, who because he is a corporate government affairs professional cannot actively participate in the transition operation. "Some of the guys who were seeking transition jobs were just scary."

"We either have Clinton holdovers or folks from the campaign, but honestly, a lot of the people from the campaign aren't the types you want being the face of the new administration right now," says the outside adviser to the campaign. "The people coming to me looking for jobs aren't people I'd hire to work in the White House or at a senior level for a cabinet office. I don't know that they could pass a basic security clearance, let alone a full national security vetting. So that's why you're seeing all these Clinton re-treads. "
