Back From The Dead

I'm not sure what to make of this list. I assume that most of it is to let the military and foreign policy establishment know that he isn't going to be employing kids from his Facebook list to run American foreign policy. (Hey, don't laugh. Bush hired interns from the Heritage Foundation to build a new nation in Iraq. It happens.)

But Boren and Nunn? Really? Did they have to go that far? Those two are the Bobsy twins of back stabbing. There's a lot of ego on that list, but these two really believe the world missed out when it failed to make them Emperor. Let's hope neither of them gets it in his head, as they are wont to do, to put the new president in his place by running to their friends in the press and publicly disagreeing with him in the middle of delicate negotiations. They're older now. Maybe they're wiser too.
