As the Obama Cabinet comes together, moderates like myself have liked what they’ve seen, and even conservatives have been pleasantly surprised at the centrist group the Office of the President-Elect has put together thus far.

But the liberals appear restless.

“He has confirmed what our suspicions were by surrounding himself with a centrist to right cabinet. But we do hope that before it’s all over we can get at least one authentic progressive appointment,” said Tim Carpenter, national director of the Progressive Democrats of America.

Yes, liberals are starting to feel more than a little bit betrayed by the less-than-left appearance of his newly formed group of closest advisers.

The response?

“Obama has told his supporters to look beyond his appointments, that the change he promised will come from him and that when his administration comes together they will be happy.”

So change is coming, just at a snails pace.
