Drain the Swamp
Bernie Sanders

I’m curious: how much of a choice is the President-elect really given over these appointments? How much arm-twisting goes on from the political machine/parties that are in power?

The reason I ask this is after the 2008 campaign trail, with Hillary & Obama completely at each other’s throats (possibly posturing, but regardless this still stands out), then Obama makes Hillary Secretary of State. With absolutely no qualifications other than being a Senator — obviously a play to build up to the 2016 election cycle. But having nothing to do with what OBAMA wanted — and everything to do with the DNC/Hillary etc.

So did Obama choose Hillary, or was Hillary chosen for Obama?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
