Quote of the Day
Here's the winner for Quote of the Day, from a Bloomberg story about President-elect Barack Obama's decisions on filling spots in his administration:
"What you're going to see with Obama is a mixture of wise men and young Turks,'' says Democratic consultant Peter Fenn.
While Obama may endure criticism for calling on some "usual suspects,'' he'd be in more trouble if his picks proved unqualified, Fenn says.
"You don't want the head of the Arabian Horse Association as your FEMA director,'' says Fenn, referring to Michael Brown (shown above), Bush's choice to run the Federal Emergency Management Agency, who was ousted after the botched government response to Hurricane Katrina.
