      •  Well, Cheney's rule changes haven't gone away (0+ / 0-)

        despite a supposed administration of "change."

        Talk about the perfect being the enemy of the good.

        •  what's needful is faster turnover (0+ / 0-)

          in the agencies.

          Remember the "line Item Veto" Reagan lusted after for Presidents?

          I'd like 'em to be able to, agency by agency, fire the previous administration's appointees on Day 1 (and the Senate confirmation "secret holds" should be abolished, too. No more blackmail!).
