Obama’s Team Says They Aren’t Waiting Any Longer

Yahoo news (sorry about that) quotes some Obama advisers as saying they aren’t going to wait for the inauguration to engage the economic problems. This sounds to me like the first mistake he has made.

A cardinal rule of those in waiting is not to engage until you can control events. The Obama team isn’t there yet. Moreover, they are acting without complete information and that is always a dangerous position in life or politics. This is still a political game and the Republicans still control the White House. Bush is said to be working hard to insure a smooth transition but don’t be surprised if some other officials in the administration aren’t setting the Obamites up for an embarrassing gall.

FDR eschewed all attempts by Hoover to draw him during the interregnum. Obama should have learned from that.
