I wouldn't. Fuck republicans. Why the hell should they be rewarded fucking everything up?As tempting as this sentiment is, that is exactly the attitude that Bush and the Republicans have had for the last 8 years, and it is a big, big part of the problem.
Obama will need 'friends' in Washington, connections. People who know the ropes. Hillary has been there a long time. Being President isn't stepping into a clean role, it's packed with complexities to navigate. This is a long haul ahead of him with a gigantic mess to clean up.
Is there such a vacuum of talent among the Democratic Party, that we have to keep going back to the same people?
"The summons to leadership that we face at present is our fourth rendezvous with destiny. Answering this summons does not mean peace, prosperity, justice for all and no more wars in the world—any more than the American Revolution meant all people were free, the Civil War meant an end to racial inequality, or World War II and our great victory in the Cold War meant the triumph of democracy and free markets. What our leadership in the world does mean is that these things have a chance. We can have peace. We can continue moving toward greater prosperity for all. We can strive for justice in the world. We can seek to limit the destruction and the casualties of war. We can help enslaved people find their freedom."
