The best example of the Obama Battleplan Version 2.0 is Robert Gates. Obama’s insurgent candidacy was founded on his opposition to the Iraq war and a promise to end it, fast. But the Democrat has turned to the very man running the Iraq and Afghan wars for the current Republican president, officials confirmed to The Associated Press. Gates, who has served as President George W. Bush’s defense secretary for two years, will remain in the Cabinet for some time, probably a year, according to an official familiar with discussions between him and the president-elect. His appointment would fulfill an Obama pledge to include a Republican in his Cabinet.
