For the candidate of change, they're all bringing some quick changes. They're all quickly changing Obama's new world order.
Is Israel getting what it wants from its attacks in Gaza...is Hamas getting what it wants? Is the best we can hope for another TEMPORARY end of violence? Egypt keeping its borders closed, preventing humanitarian aide from getting to suffering and dying "fellow Arabs?"
Obama plans a $300 billion tax cut...some say it's to appease critics on the right. Maybe...But Obama has shown a Bill Clinton-like move to the middle in many more ways than this one.
Roland Burris arrives in DC, saying he wants the Senate to abide by the law and seat him. No irony there.
Bill Richardson wanted to be president.. then vice president.. then secretary of state.. then commerce secretary. Now? Forget about it. Is it possible that neither he nor Obama's vetters didn't see this Grand Jury investigation looming? Never mind - Richardson says he has the best job in the world now anyway.
Finally, two months and a day after the election, Minnesota's election board says it will certify Al Franken as senator, with a margin of just 225 votes over in cumbent Norm Coleman. That's one 100th of a percent. How could two such completely different candidates run so closely...Is this not more evidence that we are two countries attached by just a few percentage points of swing voters?
And yes, John Travolta... why is his son's death awakening anger at the too-cool-for-school star... Given the ambiguity of Jett's condition, should it?
