Thanks, But No Thanks

As President-elect Obama has been appointing various people to Cabinet positions, the media has gone after the opinions of the people in the Bush administration that are about to be replaced.

Why? It allows these people, like Condi Rice and others, to offer an "informed" opinion of the new team, as if they've done such a bang-up job that, oh yeah, it's really worth it to hear them guage who is or isn't going to do a good job.

Condi Rice, queen of the "well, none of this has been MY fault!" crowd of Bush administration officials, offers her validation of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Great. It's like a vegan recommending filet mignon: DOES. NOT. COMPUTE.

As you know, I'm a big believer in the belief that everyone is allowed to speak his or her mind, even if they're a political appointee of George W. Bush. I'm just wondering why the media is trying to delude us into thinking that anything people like Condi say has, at this point, any merit whatsoever.
