Condoleeza Rice is famous because she was a massive failure at her job. Jobs. If you haven't heard of them it means they were carrying out their duties without scandal or incident.

Except not.

It's kind of amazing to me that a guy that worked as a lobbyist for Fannie is Obama's NSA.

The National Security Advisor is not a member of the Cabinet.

And the importance of the role will differ from Chief Executive to Chief Executive.
Oh, and there's no reason to believe that Tom Donilon doesn't know what he's doing just because he's not as prominent a public figure as some of his forebears (most of whom were bound to get more attention anyway, because they served during the Cold War).

Or it could be that he's actually staying out of the spotlight deliberately.

Oh, and it's McGeorge Bundy, not George McBundy.

GEEZ!

Yeah, it's a bigger deal than that, since it doesn't require confirmation.

Possibly.

Getting Zbigniew Brzezinski right is an indicator that there will inevitably be a typo in the post elsewhere, I think.

To most Christians, the bible is like a software license. They don't read it. They just scroll to the bottom and click 'i agree'
