Fallow period for political junkies  
For those like me who, every four years, go into a frenzy of political ecstasy and edge-of-your-seat TV viewing, keeping up with every poll and every gaffe on the campaign trail, the post election-pre-inauguration period is painful. Out of habit I try to watch the same political shows but the news is slow and boring. Blah blah the Clintons blah blah automaker bailout blah blah appointments blah blah Team of Rivals blah blah Bush lame duck watch blah blah blah. The adrenalin rush is gone and there's no way to get it back.

Could January 20th come now? Can we hit fast forward before Bush screws anything else up? Please?

Write your representatives and keep on them to make sure they don't screw anything else up before Congress adjourns, there's still a lot at stake.

Fortunately my representatives are on it! There's still a lot that Bush can screw up if not watched carefully!

Cabinet appointments
We can always get hooked on any news of Obama's cabinet picks.

Re: Cabinet appointments
Yes I was watching Rachel Maddow last night and listening to a discussion of what his picks might mean. I know some people are all upset that he's drawing from the Clinton Administration but where else are you going to find Dems with experience? I think that with Obama setting the direction, there's no harm in having people with the previous experience needed to manifest his vision for the country. We need people who fully understand the complexities of government and international relationships. And it wasn't like the Clinton years were bad or something!

Keep up hope! This could be Bush's time to shine -- to surprise us all and do something so spectacularly awesome that he'd be leaving on a high note in his political career. Yeah, it would be a first, but we've had so many "firsts" lately that it's not entirely outside the realm of possibility . . . right?
