Good Idea or Bad?

via TPM
Jones will be replaced by his chief deputy, Tom Donilon, a former Democratic political operative and lobbyist who in many ways is already the day-to-day leader of the White House national security operation. The move deepens a season of White House turnover near the midpoint of Obama's term, with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel departing last week, chief economic adviser Lawrence Summers leaving by year's end and other changes expected before long.

I cannot convince myself that this is a good idea. Donilon's background, up until the last two years, is most definitely not in National Security. This appointment is an accident waiting to happen and I can only hope that it will not blow up in everyone's face.
