163. OK...
Joseph Biden (gaffe-king and credit card whore)
Timothy Geithner (banker and economy destroyer placed in charge of Treasury)
Robert Gates (GW Bush Appointee for f*cks sake)
Eric Holder (the "look the other way on torture", "oppose Valerie Plame's lawsuit", and ____ fill-in-the-bank.... guy)
Tom Vilsack (Monsanto-boy, DLC, and all-around corporatist asshole)
Steven Chu ("clean-coal" advocate, fumbler/bumbler, and dud)
Rahm Emanuel (DLC sell-out extraordinaire)

I'm sure others can add more. But the important point is not that he made some bad appointments. It's that the country is teetering on the brink, had one shot at righting itself, and simply could not tolerate another four years of status-quo. We were at a time when we had to have the very best. And we didn't get it. We got poor to middling.
