Change we can believe in ...

... Hilla the Hun gets Secretary of State, Rahm Emanuel is his chief of staff, John Podesta chair of his transition team. So far, Team Obama looks a lot like the old Clinton gang.
It makes him a pragmatist, one commentator said. That makes sense, it goes with his professor of law, cautious, weighing-up-all-sides-of-the-argument intellectualism. We may now be getting a glimpse of what Barack Obama's really like. What with some acclaiming him very improbably as the Messiah and others denouncing him equally improbably as a Moslem revolutionary, the man himself was something of an enigma. He's fessed up to reverting to cigarette smoking in recent months. Good. At least that means he's as human as the rest of us.
