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.Mark Ambinder, The Atlantic.
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.
