“…So, why isn’t he practicing what he preached…by bringing the best and the brightest of a new generation into his administration…The average age of the Obama cabinet is 54, three years older than the average age of the Clinton cabinet and a full seven years older than the average age of the Kennedy cabinet…Not exactly what one would call change – whether you believe in it or not.
