OBAMA DISPLAYS HIS INTELLIGENCE AND RESPONSIBILITY IN ANSWERING A QUESTION PUT TO HIM BY ED HENRY OF CNN. THIS IS SO NEW FOR ALL OF US, I ALMOST WANT TO PINCH MYSELF TO MAKE SURE I AM NOT DREAMING.

Obama Takes Down Media’s ‘Conventional Wisdom’: ‘The Vision For Change Comes From Me’

During a press conference earlier today, CNN’s Ed Henry challenged President-elect Barack Obama on his naming of some recent appointees who have had experience serving in the government. “What do you say to your supporters looking for change?” Henry wondered. Obama noted that there is a “conventional wisdom floating around Washington that ‘well, there’s a recycling of people who were in the Clinton administration.’”

Addressing the media criticism directly, Obama explained:

It would be surprising if I selected a Treasury secretary who had had no connection with the last Democratic administration because that would mean the person had no experience in Washington whatsoever. And I suspect you would be troubled and the American people would be troubled if I selected a Treasury secretary or a chairman of the National Economic Council…who had no experience whatsoever.

Obama said his personnel selections will “combine experience with fresh thinking.” But he underscored that the buck stops with him:

But understand where the vision for change comes from first and foremost. It comes from me. That’s my job — is to provide a vision in terms of where we are going and to make sure that my team is implementing it.
