At least in the political world, it’s how much the Obama administration is shaping up to resemble the Clinton administration.

And the question of the day….this is change?

If you liked Janet Reno’s Justice Department, you’ll love Eric Holder’s.

Eric Holder, of course, is Obama’s new pick to head up that Cabinet position.

Despite Holder’s claim that he had little if anything to
do with Clinton’s pardon of fugitive/campaign contributor Marc Rich, 
House Government Reform Committee chairman Rep. Dan Burton concluded,
in a 476-page 2002 report covering 177 Clinton pardons, that Holder had
played a significant role in facilitating the Rich pardon.

Earlier this year, the Republican National Committee and Human
Events blew the whistle on Eric Holder’s key role in the pardons of
Puerto Rico’s FALN terrorists. That item from Holder’s bio does not
bode well for the War on Terror.

Count, then, on a full-court press by an Obama/Holder Justice
Department to return to the bad old Reno days when terrorism was
considered a criminal justice problem and not a national security and
defense  problem.

Other signs are lining the roadmap to change that point to more of the same.

To which most people in America who really did want change can agree…..we sure hope not.

At least hope continues to be a theme here.
