För den som är intresserad har nu personerna som ska utarbeta grunderna för den nya Obama administrationen offentliggjorts. Med Susan Rice som kallade Hillary för en häxa som en del av det natioella säkerhetsteamet villket kanske får en eller annan att undra. För den som följer amerikanska politik kan man undra om det blir en liknande situation som med John Bolton i utrikesdepartementet under Colin Powell.
Policy Working Groups
The focus of the Policy Working Groups will be to develop the priority policy proposals and plans from the Obama Campaign for action during the Obama-Biden Administration. The Policy Working Groups will focus on the following areas: Economy, Education, Energy & Environment, Health Care, Immigration, National Security, and Technology, Innovation & Government Reform.
The National Security Policy Working Group works closely with key
experts and our agency review teams to help prepare the
President-elect, Vice President-elect and senior national security
appointees as they are named to make early decisions on critical
national security issues.
