I am totally diggin' Obama's transition team website. I haven't looked through the whole thing yet, but here are a couple of my favorite features so far:

-The ticker at the top of the pages counting down the days until Obama's inauguration

-The detailed (and totally kickass) page about women's issues.

-And, as Queers United reports, the site's job page clearly states:
The Obama-Biden Transition Project does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law.
HOPE: They're doing it right.

So far they are doing it totally wrong. Just like I thought they would.

Boys club count: 2 Biden and Emanuel. Soon to be 3 with Summers. That is NOT change.

I wrote a fact-intensive article about it here.

Your link didn't seem to work, but I hear what you're sayin'. I was originally a Clinton supporter, after all. Plus, the Biden choice didn't wow me at first, and I'm not too happy about the idea of Larry Summers, either.

But I guess it just feels good to get to be optimistic about a few things for the first time in a long time. I know there will be disappointments along the way, and we're right to speak out about them, but I can't help but feel hopeful right now.

Thanks for catching that. It's updated now. They must have rerouted the page without telling me. The nerve!
