41. It is about LEADERSHIP! The OP misses the point
Obama says he will surround himself with people smarter than him and the OP tries to be the snark. Sorry, wrong on more than one count!

For one, it is an effective tactic to humble oneself....I have made a career in sales and I can tell you that this is effective. Second, you seem to imply that if Obama is not the smartest of his cabinet it refects negatively on Obama. The goal is not to be the smartest (Einstein never was our president) but to be a leader and to channel the smartest people into bettering our government. If you think of it as MR SMART surrounded by lesser minds, I think you see a recipe for failure.
