The More Things Change?.....

Obama kick-starts transition, picks Israeli Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff

Please, please, please, do not tell me that I'll soon be saying: "Oh crap, here we go again....."

well, of course we will. the same foxes in congress are in charge of the hen house. but look at it this way- at least we have control over who gets nominated to the federal judiciary system. that's way important. i tend towards the cynical so i think change will be slow- but it will come. global climate change stops for no one.

I'm just hoping that all politicians concerned, both left and right, have learned a valuable lesson in all of this: If you piss off the populace too much, you will be dramatically removed.

The only problem is, as we've seen with the current administration, an awful lot of damage can be done in 4 years, and twice as much in 8. As you pointed out, global warming waits for no one and this issue, among others needs to be addressed immediately. My current government has an abysmal record in this area, but Harper seems to wait for instructions from the White House before making any commitments to global issues. Therefore I hope Obama gives him an earful!
