A Spooky Transition....
The winner of the presidential contest will face a scary Herculean task on November 5.
An "Arduous Transition Awaits Next President" (WaPo) spells out the steep climb facing the incumbent.
Thanks to the Bush administration's radical-ideology agenda buttressed with monstrously failed policies.
McCain promises to "reach across the aisle" and "new blood" in his administration (why not in his campaign tactics and campaign staff now?). The narrow agenda of McCain's campaign is designed to strengthen the GOP's far-right base. It's a matter of record that McSame voted with the Bush far-right corporate-favoring administration 90 percent of the time.
Obama also has promises to keep, and miles to go.... But, Obama already has in place an extensive transition team to enable him to hit the ground running. For all of his big talk, McCain admittedly hasn't been able to strongly focus on the transition as he searches for a winning gimmick.... like his "you betacha" VP choice.... like Joe the Plumber.... and deploys his divisive Ayers-smear Swiftboating tactics in the home stretch.
As Republican Colin Powell, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the first Gulf War and a former Secretary of State for the current administration, said so succinctly this morning on NBC's Meet the Press with his endorsement of Obama... "after watching Sarah Palin for seven weeks I don't think she's ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the Vice President."
A no-where-close-to-ready Sarah Palin was 72-year-old McCain's first big "presidential" decision. Why should we believe his judgment starting November 5 would be any better?
November 4. Vote. It matters!
