LEFT AT THE ALTAR
LIBS BEMOAN O'S CENTRIST PICKS
WHILE most of Democratic America is basking in the Obama victory glow, one contingent despairs: liberal bloggers and activists.
Shocked that the man who ran as a post-partisan candidate seeking the middle ground is being post-partisan and seeking middle ground, these people are blasting Barack Obama's early, centrist decisions.
(cut to chase)
Later, I grew up and realized that the country doesn't necessarily share all my views, that a president has to work with all sides to achieve his goals. I saw this time and time again in the Clinton years. So my (no doubt unwanted) advice to those despairing now: Take a deep breath and grow up.
Take that nasty liberal bloggers!
Brennan out of running for top intel post

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Brennan, President-elect Barack Obama's top adviser on intelligence, has taken his name out of the running for any intelligence position in the new administration.
In a letter Tuesday, Brennan wrote letter to Obama that he did not want to be a distraction. His potential appointment has raised a firestorm in liberal blogs who associate him with the Bush administration's interrogation, detention and rendition policies.
