Apparently, President-elect Obama took Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals very seriously. Of the eight Democrats who ran against him for president, four have now agreed to join his administration: Vice President-elect Joe Biden, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Gov. Bill Richardson and Gov. Tom Vilsack.
Those left out: Sen. Christopher Dodd, John Edwards, Mike Gravel and Rep. Dennis Kucinich.
Obviously, there can be no place for John Edwards, and perhaps, Gravel is a bit loony at times but Dod and Kucinich are deserving and able.
