I forsee an extremely smooth transition from the Bush Administration into the Obama Administration. Experience--its what counts, folks.

The new generation of The Best And The Brightest have been assembled and I'm betting that they will out-do the Bushies in pure mayhem. Closer to Israel, for one thing, and smart and evil trumps dumb and evil every time. Any takers?

Naw. Even Der Fuehrer didn't fight a three-front war.
The Israelis will likely hit Iran and then we will say that we regret the loss of "innocent lives" (OK to wipe out "guilty" lives, I suppose), but that Iran's nuclear threat to Israel's existence could not be tolerated.
Now more than ever is the right time to make peace in the ME a reality...blah blah blah

Obama and his crew are blah blah blah more than war war war, except in Afghanistan, where the deceased Osama must be found and stopped from being reborn.
Foreign policy should be more fun and less fuck-up.

meshuga; The ONLY win for progressives this election is in empowerment of women and minorities. A solid win, no doubt, but still leaves open many, many more goals. (such as HONEST leadership)
