Politicians dropping out..

Is it just me but doesnt it seem like everyone in the advisory positions with Obama leaving? Like I said before I am not good with politics but I don't know if it is just more televised or it is true.

  • 3 down, 1 to go. I think Geitner is the only one left (that had to do with framing the 'economic recovery').

  • Yep, his economic team to be exact. Maybe it will take him a year to fill the positions like it did most other positions he filled. Can't be any worse than it's been the past 2 yrs.

  • With the Woodward's book coming out, they know the "cat is out of the bag" and they are leaving before the crap hits the fan. I wonder just how much they will let out or will they just gracefully say, "no comment"?

  • It's normal for appointees to leave so no it's not just you.

    Weren't there like 40 shortly after Bush took office?
