Audacious, Yes. Change, No.

The more you audaciously hope things will change just because the guy who promised it, Barack Obama, the President-Elect, said it will, the more you find out that they stay the same.

The latest proof in the pudding:

Clinton secretary Betty Currie is back!

Emerging from retirement in southern Maryland to volunteer at Obama headquarters, Ms. Currie was the personal secretary to President Bill Clinton, who became caught up in an independent counsel investigation into his trysts with the White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Since leaving the White House, Ms. Currie, 69, has shied from publicity and kept a low profile in Hollywood, Md., where she lives with her husband, Bob, and Socks, the presidential cat, which she took with her after Mr. Clinton left office.


Change. Sure. Right. And Billy Bubba didn't play "hide the cigar" with Monica, nor did she give 'im a hummer in the Oval Office. Whilst Betty Currie was Billy's secretary.

Some change. Bringing back the Clinton era!

And, look! Socks is her cat! Guess the Clintons never liked kitties anyway, didn't care to keep the little guy, except to make Americans think they like kitties, just like regular Americans do.

Yup. They voted for Obama's "change". And got Clinton's past instead...

Well, retro is in, after all...
