(CBS) –We are now just 10 days into the New Year, but I already am ready to choose a Best Picture of the Year.

It’s not Eddie Lacy of Alabama slicing through the Irish of Notre-Dame or President Obama beef-caking through a wave in Hawaii.

My choice for Best Picture of the year is one of Obama in the White House, made public this week, while he’s planning his new Cabinet. The boss and his boys, all boys in the boys club. There’s nary a girl in sight.

The president’s new Cabinet so far includes Kerry, Brennan, Hagle and Lew – two Johns, a Chuck and a Jack. Two women now in the Cabinet are on the way out; not a new woman yet on the way in.

So, Mister President: all that diversity that you and the Democrats have been talking about, and that won you re-election; now that you’re in, are you a Republican?
