Poll shows public approves of Obama's Cabinet picks

Okay that means that people, especially those who desperately needed change during the campaign trail, really give him a chance first. It's up to him to capture the movement. I am 100% confident that Obama will be a better president than George Bush. And of course Biden will be a better Vice President than Dick "dick without" Cheney.
