Obama announces chief of staff

Ok this is number two of what will probably be many posts on the Obamarama. I'm blogging now that I have internet. I said I would.

Obama's first political act since getting elected was the appointment of Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff. Rahm Emanuel is a prominent member of the Democratic Leadership Council

What's that? It a right wing pressure group within the Democrat part that advocates the Democrats should shift further to the right and abandon populism.

So Obama the populist gets elected and the first thing he does...abandon populism.

It all seems soooooooooooooo familiar.
