President-elect, Are you sure about Arne Duncan?

President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Chicago Public Schools Chief Arne Duncan to join his cabinet as Secretary of Education.Obama is expected to make the announcement Tuesday.

Duncan visited the Education Department in Washington, D.C. earlier this month, but insisted the call was a purely social one. CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports Duncan frequently plays basketball with the Obama. And Obama said previously he might name him to the cabinet as education secretary. Duncan told reporters in D.C. Dec. 4 he had no idea who Obama will pick for the job. But he praised his basketball buddy, saying Obama "has an unbelievably thoughtful, comprehensive [education] plan, and there's a real opportunity to do something special going forward." Duncan was among a handful of names mentioned as likely candidates for the education post.

President-elect Obama, I beg your pardon, but did you really mean to use CPS' Arne Duncan as the National Education Secretary?
I believe the jury is still out on whether he has single-handedly brought Chicago Public Schools to ruins--not to mention the fact that he may be considered part of Chicago's gangster regime.  I can see that you are loyal to your friends--but, Arne Duncan? Surely, you jest.
