He's pretty much the closest person to Obama, and he seems even creepier than Cheny.

    Podesta, sure. Thank you! Now I just wonder why he didn't smile once all day. You'd think he'd be pretty pleased to be replacing Bush with Obama.

    It's John Podesta, he is the co-chair of the Obama-Biden transition team.

    Yet another snapshot says it's John Podesta,

    Another snapshot reveals him to be Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah.

He's also pretty much a caricature of a conservative politician, party line top to bottom and in between. Weird.

    This man was also standing directly behind Obama at the parade review stand. Is he Renegade's personal Secret Service detail? Is there a weapon under that blankie?
