It's being reported that Obama has selected Eric Shinseki to serve as Secretary for Veteran's Affairs.

Shinseki is, of course, the man who came to glory among the left when he was supposedly "fired" in retaliation for having spoken "truth to power" by arguing for more troops in Iraq than the Bush Administration was at the time willing to consider.  That whole morality tale was, of course, a myth.

And if President-elect Obama is choosing him based on his prescience in realizing that more troops were needed in Iraq than the conventional wisdom at the time admitted, well, someone else in the 2008 presidential race held that same position -- but doesn't seem to have been lavished with praise for it by Obama and the rest of the left.  Funny, that.
