The rather shocking combination of Democons in the Obama cabinet - even worse than the worst pessimists could have imagined - leads one to ask whether the political corruption in Chicago and Obama's connections to it are being used as blackmail. Obama's never going to solve the Middle East, and thus salvage the American 'brand', with Hillary as his Secretary of State. She'll pull the same stunt she pulled with health care in the early 90s: pretend to be working towards a solution while really gumming up the works, thus serving her Jewish Billionaire masters (back then, she worked for her insurance company lobbyist masters). If Wall Street really is demanding that a solution be found, how is Obama going to do it? Behind the backs of most of his cabinet and advisors?
