Lets apply for a job with the Obama administration and see what happens!

For the last two days, I've seen numerous reports calling for job seekers to submit their resume's on Obama's website www.Change.gov

I'm a seasoned manager with great credentials.  I have very few skeletons in my closet, and as an added bonus I am currently living in Washington D.C.  So I've decided to give it a try.  I filled out the "expression of interest" form last night. 

Lest you think I'm doing this as a joke - I'm not.  Although I don't really NEED a job at this point, I would seriously consider the opportunity if I manage to get through the vetting process. I'm curious if they'll even respond to my "expression of interest" (that's such a politically correct way of stating it.  Hmmph.)  An MSNBC news report published today says that administration applicants will go through the most "extensive and invasive" application process ever.  They will review all blogs, facebook profiles (I'm assuming other profiles, such as LinkedIn, as well), and they will pretty much grill everyone you've ever known in your entire life.  Well, this is as it should be.

While some of my social views might be too liberal for even the Democrats, and my financial opinions might be considered conservative for some Republicans, I have nothing to hide and I am a stickler for honest and ethical behavior (and I'm not just saying that for the FBI guys that are probably already reading this post Wink).  The question is, would they even consider someone who's blog is called "The Half Baked Lunatic"?  Hey, if the "Motley Fool" can become a highly rated and respected financial site, then I should at least have a chance.  There's gotta be SOMEONE out there with a sense of humor!

Of course, if they do respond, I probably will not be at liberty to discuss any aspect of what transpires. But ... if there is anything that I can talk about, then I'll update as appropriate.
