Former VA Gov, Douglas Wilder and Obama Supporter: Obama needs to clean his cabinet. What do you think?

Obama’s West Wing is filled with people who are in their jobs because of their Chicago connections or because they signed on with Obama early during his presidential campaign.

One problem is that they do not have sufficient experience at governing at the executive branch level. The deeper problem is that they are not listening to the people.

Hearing is one thing; listening is another.

  • I agree with him. Obama should however include himself in that cleanout for the same reasons.

  • I saw him on FOX but I don't see it happening. The Dems complained about Bush cronyism all the time but Obama has that market cornered. He might throw a couple of lower level people under a bus if he thought it might help him but for the most part. It aint happening.
