ONE SIMILARITY TO LINCOLN....

Barack Obama's aides believe he has made a mistake in hiring Hillary Clinton (Tim Shipman, 22 Nov 2008, Daily Telegraph)

[A] little after lunch on Wednesday two Obama aides went to a local coffee shop to talk. Both were veterans of the campaign, hailed as the best organised and most disciplined in US history, which has made their boss the first black president.

Both had come to believe, in the crucible of the campaign, that Mr Obama's judgment was superior to their own. But when they met on Wednesday they agreed on one thing: "He's making a mistake." As one of the participants told a friend later that night: "She'll do a good job but she'll do it for herself, not for Barack. I can't bear the drama again."


...an awful lot of people in the administration (prospective administration) seem disloyal to the president (elect).
