President-elect Obama is from Illinois and he said he was reading "Team Of Rivals" and that is all it took for the media - going on almost three weeks now - to go nuts with the meme. It's not even true! Sen. Clinton threw back and forth campaign rhetoric but in substance their foreign policy was about a quarter of an inch away from each other. The people nominated by Obama range from centrist to liberal. They all support his agenda. This isn't him nominating John McCain and Tom DeLay to cabinet posts, for goodness sake.
