"With just one week before Barack Obama moves into the Oval Office, he probably isn't thinking "Dick Cheney" when it comes to advice. That may be a missed opportunity. Because in some interesting ways, the outgoing vice president could prove to be the best friend the incoming president has."
Obama has been calming his rhetoric the closer he gets to taking office. I think the daily intelligence briefs have started to open his eyes to what is really going on in the world. It's simple to be an arm chair quarterback. I pray for Obama's success where terrorist are concerned, our lives depend upon it.
Anybody can be a politician; it's the tough, sometimes unpopular choices, which make you a leader.
