It is not a question of being surprised. It is a question of being 
informed. For example, Obama has named Susan A. Rice to be Ambassador to 
the UN. She is an African-American member of the Brookings Institute who 
apparently was a strong backer of Bill Clinton's bombing of the 
pharmaceutical plant in Khartoum and a protégé of Madeline Albright. She 
is also associated with getting Western troops involved in the Darfur 
conflict, a cause associated with Samantha Power who has been reinstated 
as part of Obama's foreign policy team.
