18. Absolutely.
You choose people who are knowledgeable and experienced. The policies that they are DIRECTED to pursue is the job of the top executive. If they proceed to pursue their own policy then they are removed and replaced.

It appears to me that some of the comments on this forum concerning Obama's choices do not reflect the realities of the situation. They support some people who have their own agendas. That is exactly what took place in the dysfunctional Bush administration. The inmates were running the asylum. The fact of the matter is that we haven't had a President for eight long years and the results have been catastrophic.
