Salon.com legend Glen Greenwald links to a new report by the left-leaning Washington Note, owned by Josh Marshall's friend Steve Clemons, in which it's stated:

A senior Obama campaign official shared with The Washington Note that in July 2008, the McCain and Obama camps began to work secretly behind the scenes to assemble large rosters of potential personnel for the administration that only one of the candidates would lead.

Lists comprised of Democrats and Republicans were assembled, sorted into areas of policy expertise, so that the roster could be called on after the election by either the Obama or McCain transition teams.


Greenwald adds: Those who believe that ideology is irrelevant and that only competence and expertise matter should find this report to be a cause for celebration. Those who believe that ideology matters would likely find it to be quite bothersome (in update #2 at the bottom): http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2008/11/24/ideol...
