The Bush administration and the two major presidential campaigns are beginning an unprecedented attempt to prevent the transfer of power in January from disrupting defense and counterterrorism efforts.

The Obama and McCain campaigns are working to compile lists of potential nominees for dozens of national-security and counterterrorism positions so would-be policy makers can be vetted and confirmed as quickly as possible.

Given the inevitable gaps, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has asked senior Pentagon officials to be prepared to stay in their jobs for the first few months of 2009. The Obama campaign has endorsed the idea. Obama aides say the Illinois senator is considering asking Mr. Gates to stay as defense chief if he is elected.

At the Department of Homeland Security, career officials have been assigned to the No. 2 posts in critical areas so they can step in when political appointees leave. Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell is forming a transition office and some of his senior aides have talked privately about staying on temporarily if requested.

Obama's Biggest Problem - He Doesn't Seem Surprised

He doesn't seem the least bit surprised to be so close to becoming president, only reinforcing the view that major politcal figures like himself are largely "s-elected" by forces behind the curtain ahead of time and then cast in a never-ending positive light by the cooperative major media propagandists.

Only a handful of years ago he was simply a big fish in the very small pond of local Ilinois politics.

I'm fairly certain that Obama is as damaged a good as Bill Clinton of 1992.

I like that word "vetted" above. All of our politicians need to

carefully & thoroughly vetted, & the results made public, from now on! This is what honest mainstream media is supposed to do.

If the Bush clan had been properly vetted, all sorts of things would have raised red flags & been revealed, for example.
