I have friends who simply don't see that much "change" coming from the Obama administration. They point to the President's recent decisions regarding Afghanistan or those relating to transparency in government as just "more of the same." While I'm tempted to start a roll call of every major decision or reversal on Bush policy Obama has made in just his first ten weeks in office, it's not really my job. But I am compelled to post this comment from the President given to 60 Minutes last night as just one example of the fundamental change he's brought:
"I think that Vice President Cheney has been at the head of a movement whose notion is somehow that we can't reconcile our core values, our Constitution, our belief that we don't torture, with our national security interests."
Please feel free to post your favorite moments of change in the comments.
