ABOUT THOSE CAMPAIGN PROMISES

Remember the web site of the president elect? when he called it the "office" of the president elect? Here is a prominent paragraph:

"End the Practice of Writing Legislation Behind Closed Doors: As president, Barack Obama will restore the American people's trust in their government by making government more open and transparent. Obama will work to reform congressional rules to require all legislative sessions, including committee mark-ups and conference committees, to be conducted in public. By making these practices public, the American people will be able to hold their leaders accountable for wasteful spending and lawmakers won't be able to slip favors for lobbyists into bills at the last minute."

Remember that old song: but that was yesterday, and yesterday's gone.

Just a note for future biographers. The One did not make it a whole month without violating a major campaign promise.

I'm just sayin'.
