    This is easily the toughest hand an incoming president has been dealt since at least Reagan, and maybe even Roosevelt.

    I believe he's up to it, but he will need all the help he can get.

    Yeah, but this is nothing for Obama. From what we've been hearing for months he should be able to solve these problems with one hand tied behind his back.

    If he is as smart as reported he will surround himself with the cream of the crop as advisors go!

    I didn't like him and didn't vote for him. That being said, I will give him the respect that is due him. I just really hope he can somehow fix this mess.

    Thusfar, the best impression of Obama is that he recognizes the need to govern closer to the center and with a sense of bipartisanship. If he does so, he will reveal himself to be a pragmatist and a shrewd leader. The apparent fact that he is reaching across the aisle for advisors, not just within the Democratic Party is also a good sign. Take the best and the brightest. Don't be afraid of debate. Embrace rationality over ideology. If he does all that, he'll be a keeper. :yes:

    you're right, it should be a cakewalk...

    Fish, you are unimpressed with Obama and expect the worst. Why should anyone try and convince you otherwise. I think you may be an unmovable object on this....

    You aren't a glass half empty guy, you are a glass broken, water spilled out, dying of thirst, locked in a room with the thermostat set on 98 type of guy!!;)

    Chief of Staff is a critical operational position in the White House. Emanuel is excellent for the job as he's a strong, forceful player with Congress and gets things done.

    As for rest, I'm stating what I perceive from reports about prospective choices for cabinet positions. Gates may be asked to stay on at defense. Volker would be a good transition caretaker, and Powell may end up running Education. We'll see....

    Yeah, asking a president to choose a Chief of Staff from the other side is asking a lot.
