8. I completely concur
This President is the smartest man in the room, of that I have no doubt. But this last year has really made me question his ability to effectively govern. These last few days, I've seen oratorical glimpses of the man I canvassed for. If it is followed up with action, I will climb right back on that Hope and Change bus. I think he needs to surround himself with the people who helped him get elected instead of the DLC holdovers from the Clinton administration. But heck, if he actually follows this up with some muscle, I might even feel charitable enough to not complain about his miserable Chief of Staff. On second thought, no, I'm not going to stop ragging on Rahm.
