8. Every administration has some degree of that. I see up and down sides to it.

Reagan had it. Nixon had it. Kennedy for SURE had it. So did Carter and Little Bush.

Clinton was kind of outside the mold in that respect.

Obama is more normal with insiders mixed with outsiders.

No . . . there's something deeper Obama has with Clark. I recall Clark attempting to stand up for Obama somehow and Obama kind of throwing him under the bus. This was in the 08 cycle (late 07) after he was our nominee but before he beat McCain.
