When I awoke this morning, I had some second thoughts about my piece, "Elixir or Delegator," in light of some statements Barack Obama has made, over the past few months, and in light, too, of news today that he intends to start making inroads on health care. Among the many joys of having a mind is that one can change it.
For what it's worth, I agree with the President-elect when he says there can only be one president at a time. Like it or not, he has to wait until he's sworn in to do the heavy lifting. For now, it's up to George W. Bush to make decisions about bailouts and snailouts as he's still on company time.
Given his propensity to bail out coke dealers, and former White House aides who perjured themselves, as well as his most recent legislation which attempts to finalize governmental molestation of the environment, I think President Bush ought to be left with the foul aftertaste of history's contempt for any wrong decisions that are made. He broke it; he bought it.
