Obama's CIA Choice Speaks Volumes

President-Elect Obama has tapped former Clinton hack Leon Panetta to be the next CIA Director. This says to me that every nook and cranny of the Executive Branch is going to be political. I suppose that's been true for many years, but Panetta has zero intelligence experience, none. Yeah, he's a number cruncher which is a lot of the job, but for an agency that's been suffering from mismanagement for years, this can't be good. Of course, the point is that Obama looks good for the next eight years, and I guess he's going to cover every base. Lord knows George W. Bush was constantly undermined by life-long bureaucrats in the CIA and other departments so Obama probably wants to make sure he doesn't suffer the same fate.
