More troubling signs from Obama
Many of Obama's cabinet picks have been safe centrist or even right-of-center, which is troubling by itself. But now we learn that right-winger and homophobe Rick Warren will deliver the inaugural invocation. I keep being told to give Obama a chance or that he's reaching across the aisle. But picks like this demonstrate that he clearly doesn't concern himself with the folks who have actually supported him. He's risking playing so hard to the right that he ignores his progressive supporters.
