Listener email from Jon Rodgers

I think Obama's picks display a measured and careful approach to assembling a team of talented people around him. I am an Obama supporter and worked for his campaign and I am not at all disappointed.  Remember, the important thing is who is at the helm.

Thanks - Jon, New Haven
