Being on the National Security Team

President-elect Obama has nominated quite a National Security Team. I am so proud that the United States produces such ability, strength, and diversity.

Secretary of Defense: Robert Gates
National Security Adviser: General James Jones
Secretary of State: Hillary Clinton
Ambassador to the United Nations: Dr. Susan Rice
Attorney General: Eric Holder
Secretary of Homeland Security: Janet Napolitano

The selection of these very strong and capable leaders says a lot about the leadership ability of President-elect Obama. He is not seeking yes men and women but strong leaders in their own right to move our country forward.

What a leader! What a country!

Judith, it's too bad that choosing such a cabinet is considered so exceptional. Shouldn't all cabinets have "ability, strength, and diversity"? But given our past I guess it IS exceptional. Anyway, 2009 should be an interesting ride!

Tis true, John, on all accounts. I'm excited about what will be and especially proud of our great country. We are all forever becoming...
