In Passing

The unquiet yearning of Maureen Dowd. Lead sentence in today's NYT column, "When he wants to, Mr. Obama can rouse the crowd to multiple ovations..." (Can He Unleash the Force?)

You'd think an editor would give her a clue, but no.

Daddy, tell me again about New Orleans: "The single biggest thing to be done is the president of the United States needs to put one person, a very high-level competent person in the White House, in charge of New Orleans. And that person -- the president should say to that person, "I want you in my office every morning telling me what you did in New Orleans yesterday." And the next day say, "I want you in my office telling me what you did yesterday. I'm not interested in what you're going to do six months from now; I want to know what you did yesterday. And I want to know what's happening on the ground," the president, "what's happening on the ground every single day." John Edwards, sucking up just as fast as he can

We tried putting the federal government in charge of New Orleans and such places in the past. Reconstruction did not turn out so well.
