The most important revelation in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta’s emails has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The messages go all the way back to 2008, when Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. And a month before the election, the key staffing for that future administration was almost entirely in place, revealing that some of the most crucial decisions an administration can make occur well before a vote has been cast.

Michael Froman, who is now U.S. trade representative but at the time was an executive at Citigroup, wrote an email to Podesta on October 6, 2008, with the subject “Lists.” Froman used a Citigroup email address. He attached three documents: a list of women for top administration jobs, a list of non-white candidates, and a sample outline of 31 cabinet-level positions and who would fill them. “The lists will continue to grow,” Froman wrote to Podesta, “but these are the names to date that seem to be coming up as recommended by various sources for senior level jobs.”

The cabinet list ended up being almost entirely on the money. It correctly identified Eric Holder for the Justice Department, Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security, Robert Gates for Defense, Rahm Emanuel for chief of staff, Peter Orszag for the Office of Management and Budget, Arne Duncan for Education, Eric Shinseki for Veterans Affairs, Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services, Melody Barnes for the Domestic Policy Council, and more. For the Treasury, three possibilities were on the list: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, and Timothy Geithner.

Just more proof of how the bankers and megacorporations are our rulers.

Will we ever get angry enough to throw off the chains?

The Wikileaks 7 dump has a lot of interesting stuff in it.

Obama and Clinton are joined at the hip. Whatever he has done she will also do.

This really is huge and goes to show what most of us knew or suspected, that our leaders are not the ones who are truly in charge. This is bigger than any one person or candidate.

Is it surprising to anyone? Google is most influential corporation. On election night in 2012, Schmidt (Google then CEO, now chairman) was in Obama’s Chicago campaign headquarters “boiler room” alongside the team charged with maximizing voter turnout. Google knows who is our next president is going to be.

Google’s lobbying efforts pay off with nearly-weekly meetings at the White House
