    Not so much... and they are trying to spin the best the NYT can:

    Seems the WaPo got to it too. Much more of this and it might seem they are actually reporting news...

    How much? Well economically we have his 'malaise speech' to the world, from the office of the President Elect:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zd8f9Zqap6U]YouTube - Your Weekly Address from the President-Elect[/ame]


    Then I came across this! More 'CHANGE!' regarding Gitmo:

    WONKS either work as lobbyists or they work for the government.

    When their allies are out of power, they're lobbyists.

    When in power, they're working in the government.

    It's a cozy arrangement that I do not expect to see change anytime soon.

    when was the last Presiday who won 53% and almost 8 million votes?

    Obama has approximately 66 million of people who WANT to hear what he has to say, and would gladly forgo the period between 11/5/08 and 1/20/09 and have him sworn in NOW as President.
