Gasp, shock; the man is the centrist leader he said he would be and one this country needs. Its easy to say he's caving to right-wing interests, particularly if you aren't the first black president elect trying to get a major stimulus bill through. And the comments on Huffpo show that some of his biggest supporters are no better than the conservatives they despise.
But I for one am very encouraged by this. He's going in and fighting battles on their own turf...and, who knows? Maybe he's winning some.
I don't think this means he'll overturn RoeV.Wade or put all gays in stocks. What it does mean is he's determined to change the way this country does business. Thank holy God someone with some intellectual dexterity is in charge. Partisan hackery will further entrench us in this Godawful mess.
As always, just my opinion.
