54. My God, this is ignorant.
Obama himself specifically instructed his people not to give up confidential information to the media. When the team consisted strictly of Obama's own people, this did not happen. Obama's top people aren't talking to the media. The "source affiliated with the transition team" is a Clintonite who has an agenda to push. This really is not that hard. They were documented to have exaggerated and lied about (1) the substance of the meeting, (2) Obama's opinion of the other contenders (who happen to be Clinton opponents now), and (3) whether the meeting was for ONE post or a variety of posts. This is proven. Why would you believe anything that proven liars say, unless you WANT to?
