Obama has already helped the economy.
Reprints of the NYT election issue and extra copies of the TIME and NEWSWEEK election issues have been flying off the shelves.
I bought two sets of the magazines, one for myself and one for a friend's birthday.
That interview was the worst dreck I've heard on NPR in a long time. Because he and VP-elect Biden chose chiefs of staff who had served in the Clinton White House, President-elect Obama is failing to keep his promise of change?? Give me a break. Chiefs of staff are not about policy or ideology, they're operations managers. Sorry, Brian, but you just cannot take time off. :)

I believe that President-Elect Obama, is making very intelligent choices for his staff. Though there are some Clinton staffers who have been chosen, I don't feel that "Change" is at risk. The people chosen provide experience in dealing with a Democratic Congress (especially the far left) that tried to steam roll President Clinton early on in his administration. The same can be seen in President Carter's administration. The experience provides a hedge against an extreme left agenda pushed from within Congress and provides for governing from the center. (The position that was campaigned from).
I actually wish that HRC would stay in the Senate. It may be selfish on my part, but that way I get to benefit from her service to my state as well as BHO's service to my country.
