Obama Already at Work on Transition

Not yet the Democrat Party nominee for the presidency, and more than four months until the general election, Sen. Barack Obama has already directed his aides to start planning the transition from the Bush administration to the Obama administration as the 44th President of the United States of America.

With less than six months to go before he would be sworn in as the nation’s 44th president, Sen. Barack Obama has directed his aides to begin planning for the transition.

"Barack is well aware of the complexity and the organizational challenge involved in the transition process and he has tasked s small group to begin thinking through the process,” a senior campaign adviser said. "Barack has made his expectations clear about what he wants from such a process, how he wants it to move forward, and the establishment and execution of his timeline is proceeding apace."

A campaign spokesperson confirmed that transition planning had begun but would provide no further details. An adviser said that the campaign wants to keep the process as low profile as possible in order to minimize distractions.

A public announcement is planned for the fall.

And they called George Bush arrogant and secretive. Before his party even elects him as their champion, Obama is traipsing around the world as if he were already the President and now he's planning his coronation inaugeration. On top of that, he has no plans to tell anyone outside of his inner circle until the fall which, I presume, means the autumn.

Hat tip to the blog Not Falling in Line, a pro-Hillary Clinton/ anti-Obama site. Many of the contributors intend voting for McCain if Obama truly is the nominee after the convention in Denver.

What do you think the chances are that Hillary is planning some kind of coup in Denver? I am really surprised that she hasn't been more visible supporting him. They would turn Denver into a cinder if she pulled it off. Don

I think the chances of Hillary making a last stand in Denver is very high even if it's just her supporters. She is not one to say, 'If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.'

The chances of fireworks, at least, are 100%. The Clintonistas are a persistant lot.

I've got earthlink, and it loads with headline news. In the political section today, the five lead stories started with the word Obama.

We're on the same page, today, Indigo. I did a post on Democrats who are for Obama. I think the DNC convention is going to be very interesting! LOL!

Indigo Red said...

I agree, Gayle. In fact, I think the DNC convention will be far more interesting than the RNC. And entertaining, too.

It may even be dangerous.

Congratulations on finally getting your Earthlink, Tom. I was wondering how you kept in contact from the far reaches of the planetary system.

I'm not surprised Obama dominates the headlines. He's more interesting than McCain just as Britney Spears is more interesting than Mother Theresa.
