Obama, Still New Office, Has Veteran's Command

Isn't it refreshing to watch a US President - - this would be Mr. Obama - - speak, take questions from media in a news conference and at an unscripted Indiana event, and otherwise handle the ongoing economic crisis as national CEO - - while with an thinking on his feet and speaking in coherent sentences?

Paragraphs, even.

It's also refreshing to read that his advisers and cabinet officers are continuing to hammer out plans, including a public-private partnership to leverage the second half of the banking bailout, that bespeak a certain pragmatic, flowing creativity that was absent in the White House as the economy flamed out in the last year of the Bush presidency.

I get the feeling that the real grownups are now in charge.

The last group was a buncha fakes.
