Obama: 'Change comes . . . from me'
By NIA-MALIKA HENDERSON
Obama referred to his team of advisers as "fresh thinking," adding that the vision for change comes first and foremost from me.
President-elect Barack Obama pushed back at a press conference in Chicago today when asked how he would respond to supporters "who were looking for change," given how many of his announced and rumored appointments thus far are Clinton administration veterans.
When it comes to the people that we've pulled together -- because I know this has been sort of conventional wisdom floating around Washington -- that, well, you know, there's a recycling of people who were in the Clinton administration, Obama replied, referring specifically to the economic team he introduced on Monday.

I am the walrus...goo goo g’joob.
He conned half of America into thinking that, otherwise they wouldn't have voted for him.
Not one week after the election my starry-eyed liberal sister was still trying to sell me on Obama. It's a psychosis, I tell you.
“Levin would have had this posers nuts on a platter.”
Hannity would have, too, at one time. I think the threat of the Fairness Doctrine has compromised his grit.
When Rush gets too gushy with the seminar callers, I go to my PC and listen to Tammy Bruce. She’s tougher than all of them, except maybe Levin.
“I am the way, the truth and the light. No one comes to the
Father but through me.” John 14 something.
Obamassiah needs a shrink.
Regardless of what we all think of Obama, the headline here is grammatically dishonest. The subject of the sentence was “vision” - the vision comes from Obama. “Change” was part of a prepositional phrase. He did not say what the title says he did - it’s a distortion.
I’m all about criticism and ridicule of the One (after all, see my tagline), but it needs to be based in truth.
“Change comes from me”? More plagiarism, in this case a rip-off of John D. Rockefeller’s practice of handing out dimes to kids.
I was fond of pennies for UNICEF myself....
Only someone with little or no executive experience would make that comment. He sounds like a little boy.
