Sounds like one heckuva resume as Obama again chooses experience over ideology (Jones is either apolitical or even leans Republican but he doesn’t let on either way).  With a no nonsense Marine in the Situation Room, Hillary at Foggy Bottom, and Gates sticking around at the Pentagon, it sounds like Obama is putting together a robust foreign affairs team.  I think that is a very good move on his part, as these are tough times and foreign policy is not his own area of greatest experience.
