Obama is moving General David Petraeus to head up the CIA. Probably the USA's greatest expert on counter terrorism. Another brilliant move from Obama. Probably signals the draw-down from Afghanistan after the fighting season. Takes a potential rival out of the next presidential race. Remember, Republicans drafted Eisenhower because they didn't like any of the other candidates. AND Eisenhower was the last Republican president to balance the budget. Obama has a way of getting his political rivals to work for him. Doesn't matter their past relationship, he gets the talent. See Sec. of State. Obama kept the best from the Bush administration, slim pickings and all. Obama is obviously a thoughtful leader and a diplomat. The Republicans can't see this. It must be too "dark".
