President Obama

Bad Idea

Okay, so I think William Lynn is a mistake and should probably be asked to step off. But the hitch is that he's was probably part of a quid pro quo of some sort. In other words, if you want X, you're going to have to appoint Lynn.

I can't imagine this was done just because he's somehow the most qualified man in America for the Deputy Secretary of Defense gig. I mean, no-one else can do that job? No-one?

And, discuss...
