Thus far

In spite of some pre-inaugural mis-steps, I'd give the Obama administration an A at this point.

Hmm...
Old Joke:
Guy jumps off a twelve story building.
As he passes the sixth floor a fella in an office asks:
How ya doin'?
So far so good the guy replies.

May we grow wings soon -- and not angel wings.

Well, the really difficult questions haven't even bee addressed yet, he's doing the easy stuff first; so grading is aways-off yet. Nationalize the major bankrupt banks? Prosecute the big-money thieves? Prosecute anyone high-up in the Bush Admin? Restore presidential powers back to a former lower level? How to stop losing in Afghanistan? What to do if Iraq returns to chaotic violence when we pull out? And those are just for starters....

I'm not entirely optimistic he's going to have any good answers for most of those. Neither do i... Man, i sure wouldn't want to have his job!!

Check out what Dr. Hudson (Kucinich's Econ-Advisor) has to say about BHO abetting the Grand Theft of Our Money, and see if you'll still give him an "A"...

It appears as if he's taking baby steps so far, undoing midnight legislation, trying to clean up the most obvious messes first (Gitmo), and baby steps are okay at first while he gets his bearings. I just hope he learns to walk and run in quick succession because we desperately need him to.
