McCain's Wealthy Cabinet Picks
CNN reports that John McCain said he'd include Democrats in his cabinet. Since Sen. Barack Obama said the same about Republicans months ago, there's no story there. (Unless it that's McCain gives us Joe Lieberman, hardly something to write home about.)
But, this quote is curious: [More...]
He said he'll also ask some members of his Cabinet "to work for a dollar a year. They've made enough money.
And for the poor? No mention of cabinet positions, but in a attempt to get over the backlash his surrogates and VP candidate have caused over their "community organizer" comments, he adds:
But I'll also ask people who have struggled out there in the trenches to help people, to volunteer in their communities, who understand these problems at that level, which obviously is lost on a lot of -- a lot -- a big segment of Washington."
Update and clarification: As commenters have pointed out, it's not clear from the placement of the comma whether he's saying he'd ask those who have stuggled to help out in their communities or to serve in his cabinet. If it's the latter, good for him.
