Obama, who has been receiving intelligence briefings for weeks, already knows what a scary world it is out there. It is unlikely he will wildly overcorrect for the Bush administration's abuses. A very senior incoming official, who refused to be quoted discussing internal policy debates, indicated that the new administration will try to find a middle road that will protect civil liberties without leaving the nation defenseless.
Excerpt from:

*Edit: Cheney pushed for expanded presidential powers. Now that he's leaving, what will come of his efforts? The new president won't have to wait long to tip his hand.

Hi Junebug,
Thanks for your recent visit to my blog. I read in Blue Momma's comments that you are expecting a grandchild. Our third grandchild and first grandson is due to arrive February 5.

It must be late. I don't understand the cartoon? (I feel really dense)

I noticed that Obama has already aged. The presidents job does that to people with expediency.

It's about the mark that Cheney has left on expanding Presidential powers. It won't be easily erased? You'd have to read the story.

I can hardly wait for Mr. Obama to take over.

I think we'll see a difference. I hope so anyway.
