11/10: Radio for your Obama cabinet obsession

For those who are obsessing: Will Obama be a centrist? -will he be a progressive [i.e., left-liberal] -or a liberal?
For the always intelligent, timely discussion and analysis, tune in to WNYC radio's Brian Lehrer Show, November 10, 2008, 10 AM. Peniel Joseph, Brandeis professor and PBS "Newshour" consultant and Tim Noah of will weigh in. Joseph on the historical persepective, and Noah on the possible cabinet choices.
Tim Noah made several good arguments in "The Uncabinet: A guide to key appointments Obama should resist" as to why President-elect Obama should not appoint Hillary Clinton, Bill Richardson, John Kerry, Anthony Lake, Robert Rubin, Lawrence Summers, Arnold Schwarzenegger and on and on. Some of his criticisms strike me as a bit cynical, but his article is worth the read.
