Obama will renominate currently-serving Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to the same position within his Administration. This is a pretty high-profile move that I think speaks volumes about Obama’s willingness to put policy and experience first and ideology second. Gates will be tasked with ending the war in Iraq, the opposite of what his job was under Bush, but thats the job of the SecDef, to implement the President’s vision as the civilian leader of our armed forces.
