It seems that his nomination for Secretary of State has gone through the hearings swimmingly and I for one still have reservations about it. Yes I'm in the minority when I say that Hillary being the top diplomat in the country was a poor choice and history may prove me wrong on that, but I can't wrap my brain around it.
Does anyone remember the racist Gandhi joke she made? No? Why is it just me?
Now the President elect has opted out of investigating alleged crimes made by the Bush administration. This is not unprecedented as every President has done this; however, shouldn't that change?

Maybe I'm being too hard on the President elect given he hasn't even been sworn into office yet. Still just because he's the chose one for many I'm not going to give him a free pass on decisions I think are detrimental to the health of this country. Perhaps he'll surprise me.
