I've been fairly quiet about politics lately, but tonight I just need to express my over-the-moon excitedness that right now, as I write, Barak Obama is claiming the Democratic nomination for President of the United States!!! I am so happy I could cry!!!
And as Jae and I sit here listening to his heart-swelling speech and the crowd roar and cheer, we thought it might be fun to share with you the Obama Administration Dream Team we've been cooking up, half-seriously and half-tongue-in-cheek.
There are still positions open and others to add... Any suggestions?
