Isn't Turtle obstruction enough? Can our own coalition groups let our own President have some leeway

Not only for the current UNpresident and his regime, but for past administrations, it has been at least lip service that a president is entitled to his or her choice of appointees, even how Repukes have pushed forward unsavory (up to the line of criminality) characters, or especially placing characters (as in almost all Repuke regimes) whose personal philosophy is antithetical to the mission of the position (hostile to conservation at the Interior Department, hostile to diplomacy at State or the UN).

Turtle has been blatant about shoveling Deplorables into the judiciary and other inappropriate agencies, while also blocking Dem nominees. And he has been shameless in adhering to that lip service about Repukes having the right to their choices.

But these days when we have our own President-Elect assembling his team the news is crammed with buzz from this or that sub-group of our own coalition demanding almost-quota slots from their own own sub-group or threats if one of their perceived enemies is being considered for some position.

In the names that have been solidly named so far we already have the most diverse team ever. If this or that name coming down the pipeline is not the first or first-hundred preference to one or another of our constituent groups, can't we as the coalition of the whole take a step back from the one tree to take in the forest?

2. what forest?

I read one yesterday by Erin Brokovich. Apparently a person only has to be part of the transition team to sully the President-elect. The fact that they can't wait until January 20th to start attacking makes me infuriatingly ill.

3. Yea, I've seen 3 or 4 Big News items about our different groups griping and demanding. Not just DU

I purposely didn't cite sources or our sub-groups to not contribute to the dissension.

4. I miss the unity of earlier this year.

I guess that's wearing off. One person worked for a corporation once or whatever and that's it, the whole thing is ruined, the Biden administration is going to be the same as Republicans.

I don't care for this black or white, good or bad, pure or corrupt thinking. And all of a sudden I see a lot of suspicion or concern that Biden is somehow not being honest. The guy's motto is "Never promise anything you can't deliver."
