In a rare post about my personal life (all of my posts have been about some aspect of politics, policy or technology, while only my “About Me” page focuses on me), I wish to report that I am currently going through final exams. I am sharing this to explain my absence (and my woeful slip-up in not reporting the Blagojevich mess!). I shall resume blogging once I am done finals. Until then, please bare with me and don’t give up on Opinion Streams!
Thank you for being patient with me.
Obama’s pick of Sen. Clinton raises several questions. My first thought regards Clinton’s Senate seat. As several of Obama’s cabinet picks have come from the Senate (not to mention his V.P. pick), I have to wonder how Obama’s picks might affect the power of the Democratic party in the Senate. Also, New York’s Senate Seats are often vied for - and occupied - by major players, including Hillary Clinton. Who will occupy her seat next and how will that person affect the Democratic majority/power in the Senate?
My second thought concerns Clinton’s experience. She is the former First Lady and a sitting first-term Senator.
