    Mr Uygar was correct, for most of these people, their government career is over. This is about being a "team player." It seems that right now the Obama strategy, and the Democrats in general, are about not "expending political capital." Unlike Bush, who was "in your face" on a hundred fronts, who made it almost impossible to understand where to start playing defense.
    Of course, I believe that Obama will backpedal on many promises, the most egregious will be the very long time it will take to close Guantanamo. I doubt we will see anything beside those phony "blue ribbon" panels the government likes to give on torture and habeas corpus and other anti-American, illegal actions carried out by the Bush administration.
    I do not know the future, but in the end, the actions v. the rhetoric show the Democrats are not significantly different in their views than Republicans re. American Empire.
