How many Presidents does it take to change a lightbulb?
How many Presidents does it take to effect change? Two when one is George W. Bush, the lamest of the lame ducks.
Seeing the Obama team spring into action with daily press conferences, a leader who gives answers that are neither condescending nor designed to dodge and is realistic about the difficulties all serve to highlight the absurdity of the past eight years. Even in these most troubled of times, there's a beacon of light.
As for changing a lightbulb? Maybe W. is capable of that. He did have a busy day; he pardoned a turkey. Why the bird is being flown First Class to Disneyland during an economic crisis eludes me, but maybe it's for the safety of the turkey, who's likely to be the only edible thing on board. We can all take a moment tomorrow to give thanks that Bush will soon be gone.
Note to Laura Bush: if you get the book deal, you can be candid. There's no danger your husband will read this or any other book.
