The Washington Blade is reporting that President Elect Obama has included seven openly SGL individuals on his transition team to review federal departments and agencies. Three of the seven served in high level positions during the Clinton administration. They are businessman Fred P. Hochberg, former San Francisco Supervisor Roberta Achtenberg, and labor attorney Elaine Kaplan.“The Agency Review Teams for the Obama-Biden Transition will complete a thorough review of key departments, agencies and commissions of the United States government as well as the White House,” a statement posted Monday on the transition team web site states.Meanwhile, reports from Washington indicate that Obama is still considering appointing his highest-ranking gay campaign official, deputy campaign manager Steve Hildebrand, as successor to Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean. Dean announced last week that he would not seek another term as chair.

I'm loving this man....even though much of what he does isn't as intentional as i would like...i think he and his administration understand that perception takes u far. but i think he his genuine on the "inclusive we" ideas he has though. cheers to him!
