I think this will turn out to be a sage choice.
Hillary knows where to look for all the buried bodies (literal and otherwise).
This makes me think that keeping all the 'old guard' financial people close was strategic.
Perhaps we do not have enough TIME RIGHT NOW to prosecute
all the pigs in the financial industry,
all the pigs in the automotive industry,
and the war profiteering industry.
Democracy Now last week did a good job not only explaining how the finance people have and are doing us wrong.

But the link above also explained very well, how GM killed the electric car and how Exxon Mobile holds the patent (######Q@@@@IIIII) on the battery for same.
Meanwhile, lost in all the discussion about Hillary, will no doubt be the words of the brave soldiers who patriotically spent their time trying to speak truth to power about what our tax dollars are doing.

I THINK PRESIDENT ELECTED OBAMA IS STARTING ON THE GROUND RUNNING HE IS SO BRILLANT SMART AS A WHIP WITH GOOD PEOPLE BEHIND AND BESIDE HIM . HE IS DOING WITH HE NEEDS TO DO I KNOW AS HE DOES THAT HE WILL NEVER MAKE EVERY ONE HAPPY. EVEN THE ONES THAT DIDN'T VOTE FOR HIM AND TRYED TO DESTROY HIM ARE RUNNING THEIR MOUTHS AND BEFORE HE BECOMES THE PRESIDENT IT'S EXPECTED THAT THEY WILL BLAME HIM WITH ANY THING THAT HAPPENS OR WILL HAPPENS HE WILL BE HOLDS ACCOUNTABLE TO THEM BECAUSE OF THE HATE AND RACISM THAT HOLDS THIS COUNTRY BY THE BALLS THAT IF HE MAKES A MISTAKE OR MISSTEP OBAMA TO THEM WILL BE A FAILURE TO THEM NOT TO THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM OR HAD FAITH IN HIM OR SURPORTED AND TRUST HIM TO BE PRESIDENT TO ALL AMERICANS. I FIND IT STRANGE IT TOOK 8 YEARS FOR MR.BUSH TO SCREW UP THE COUNTRY AND WE THE PEOPLE STOOD BY AND SAID NOTHING NOW THEY ARE CALLING OBAMA ON STUFF THAT HAS NOT HAPPEN AND ANY THING THAT HE SAID HE BETTER MAKE HAPPEN OR THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY BECAUSE THEY ARE GUNNING FOR HIM IT'S INSANE BUT THIS IS THE FUNNY THING THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SAYING THIS STUFF IS THE CRAZIES THAT DIDN'T VOTE FOR OBAMA . THEY SPREAD LIES AND DID EVERY THING THEY COULD TO SLANDER HIM AND DIDN'T GIVE HIM A CHANCE NOW HE MUST UNDO WHAT BUSH DESTROY AND BE THE PERFECT PRESIDENT .
