Our government is filled with non-experts.

Critics should realize that technical knowledge is not as critical to the head of a giant organization as is the ability to put the appropriate people in positions of influence and surrounding yourself with trusted advisors.
I would give unqualified props to Obama for his selection of McDonald for the VA post were it not for his track record of political opportunism. I only hope Mcdonald is given the freedom to clean house as is needed in that organization. If he is successful, maybe he can be convinced to take over the IRS and repeat the process.
