  •  The leak was early. (2+ / 0-)

    That's it, period. And that happenstance has been extremely rare in the transition.

    I can think of a few strategies that could be in play.

    1. It was a big signal to Feinstein and Rockafeller that they need to see the new light.
    1. Somebody at CIA leaked it to make mischief.
    1. The choice was gonna be controversial, so it was leaked early as a trial balloon, with the thought that the two angry Senators would discover a distinct lack of support for their positions.  Evan Bayh said he would support Panetta on RMaddow last night. This may already be happening. This is also where Rahm gets to do his thing.
    1. It was a completely unplanned leak and Obama calls Feinstein and Rockafeller to apologize. It's all over.

    I suspect #4.

    Educate yourself. Think for yourself. Be yourself. Do for others.
