Maybe Bush is starting to get the idea.
I haven't seen his news conference yet, but I hope he is starting to realize that "stay the course" isn't always the most productive course to stay on.
A good step is that Rumsfeld is gone. The arrogance of that man was always appalling to me, as was his inability to really understand how the world works. (Or maybe he does understand how the world really works, but that would be so appalling to many of us if we heard it that he makes sure we can't find out.)
It's pretty hard to forget Rumsfeld's handshake with Saddam Hussein in 1983.
I hope the Bush administration will work with the new Congress and Senate to bring some sanity back to this "War on Terror".
I will be terrified if he doesn't.
