President-Elect Obama (love typing that) has a new website up for his transition team -

I've decided to give President-Elect Obama the benefit of the doubt as much as I can during the transition. Some progressives, including my own husband (screw you California!), are jumping on him for picking Rahm Emanuel as his chief of staff. I get why they're upset - Rahm's not exactly a progressive, but from what I've been reading, he knows Congress really well - knows the inner workings, the politics, the little things that he can use to get stuff done. That's what you need in a Chief of Staff, isn't it?

Also, I'm really pleased with the idea of Robert Gibbs as Press Secretary for President-Elect Obama. He took on Sean Hannity on live television recently and rhetorically kicked Hannity's right-wing tush all over the floor. That bodes well.

President-Elect Obama. Ok, just one more time. President-Elect Obama.
