A must read

Molly Ivins has a great Sunday piece on the folks who really run the Govt..

The Cork had a theory about how to choose a president. He always said it didn't matter who was running, that it was unnecessary to pay any attention to them.

What matters, he said, is the approximately 1,500 people the president brings to Washington with him, his appointments to the positions where people actually run things. The question to consider is which 1,500 people we get.
Should we have the candidates present their team before hand? At least the top dogs - the heads of the various agencies?
