Obama's first two big tests?

#1: India and Pakistan, we're partnered in ways with both... sticky.
#2: Israel/Gaza, Iran sending volunteers to help Hamas? Yikes, how long before Israel attacks Iran and they have a Hezbollah/Hamas/Lebanon/Israel/Iran free for all? Messy.

Crazy world, I hope his international team is up to the task.

Because of course you always have #3 being Russia. I love how they ported war ships in Havana a couple of weeks ago to say "Hi".

Everyone over 18 in Israel is in their military reserves.

The friction comes as President- elect Barack Obama readies a two-year stimulus package worth as much as $850 billion that will require the U.S. to borrow more than ever from China, the largest buyer of Treasury securities.
Different party, same BS.

oh, china's definitely a top one. Actually with #1 and #2 being currently active, it's only a matter of time before Russia, China, and North Korea want their moments in the spotlight back. I think that we're in a for an interesting year or two internationally.

Obama isn't in office, and he has said himself that Bush is still our President.

Until Obama is inaugurated, then these aren't things he can do anything about anyway.

Right. I think what the population would like to know is his opinion, or at least what his advisors say his opinion should be.

I have to respect the fact that he isn't directly criticizing Bush's last decisions. It shows some class and mutual respect. That doesn't mean he can't give the population a hint to what he would/will do...
