On MSNBC's Morning Joe program, Joe Scarborough reacted very negatively when the discussion turned to Obama offering the position of Chief of Staff to Rahm, saying something like 'memo to all conservatives: so much for Obama's talk about reaching across the aisle'. I'm not sure why he feels that way, but that's what happened. Personally, I think Rahm is a subperb choice, but had my doubts he'd accept. Very glad he decided to.
"Barack Hussein Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States on Tuesday, sweeping away the last racial barrier in American politics with ease as the country chose him as its first black chief executive."
I just flipped to Fox for a moment, and they were seriously discussing "the possibility that the country has gone from being a center right country, to a center left one". Brit Hume posed the question.
