I guess that "Hope and Change" jingle was just another pitch the ultimate snake oil salesmen laid on his hard of thinking liberal minions. Obama is a corrupt Chicago politician. His transition has been rocked with scandal almost from the beginning. Blagojevic and "pay to play", Emanuel Rahm was on the board of directors of Freddie Mac during the scandal a couple of years ago and was caught on tape talking with Blagojevic, Timothy Geithner is delinquent in over $30,000 in back taxes, Hillary Clinton, oh we could go on for hours on that one. Who's going to be next?
At least Bill Clinton waited until he actually took office before he got embroiled in scandals. Obama, the Annointed One, I guess just couldn't wait, he wanted to get an early jump.
