If you think his picks were moderates you must consider Bernie Sanders a far right fascist!
Does it matter? They're all corporatists.
Obama, like Bush is a corporatist (of the slightly left flavor), and will do what the corporatocracy wants (See: TPP). Expect more of the same in this regard, whether the appointee is moderate, rightwing
So keep complaining about small issues like abortion, or cloning or whatever is en vogue for the right vs. left dichotomy - the corporations will end up winning (why do you think they pump so much money into the political process - for bad investments?).
You won't get any different from the establishment machine.
