Impressive First Day?

President-elect Obama had a revealing first day in public:

  • Named a decidedly non-post-partisan Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, who like Obama, is a product of Chicago politics. Because after all, nothing says ‘a different kind of politics’ than Chicago.
  • Reversed his own transition website’s position on required National Service hours, when the plan was highlighted by Greg Mankiw’s blog. Proof once again, the Obama administration is all about change.
  • Fox News was the only major network not to participate at his 1st news conference. If evil Karl Rove were still around, that might have been referred to as payback.
  • Poked fun [and later apologized] at recently hospitalized 87 year-old Nancy Reagan.
