    The White House official whom Bob Woodward charged had crosssed a line by saying he would "regret" printing his version of a set of Washington negotiations was Gene Sperling, the director of the White House Economic Council, a source familiar with the exchange told BuzzFeed Wednesday. The email from Sperling to Woodward, which Woodward read to Politico Wednesday, has transfixed Washington, with Republicans and some in the press charging that it embodies a White House lording it over a cowed press corps. Woodward, Politico reported, called the top official — identified to BuzzFeed as Sperling — to tell him that...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President-elect Barack Obama filled top Justice Department posts on Monday with four former Clinton administration lawyers, including naming the Harvard Law School dean to argue the government's position in U.S. Supreme Court cases.

She would be the first female solicitor general, a Justice Department official said. Kagan, who became the Harvard dean in 2003, worked with Obama when both were on the University of Chicago Law School faculty in the 1990s. The 48-year-old Kagan has been...

    Last week I told you about Valerie Jarrett, the corrupt Chicago poltician serving as co-chair of Obama's transition team. This is in addition to Clinton co-conspirator John Podesta (the other co-chair) and Clinton attack dog Rahm Emmanuel as Obama's Chief of Staff. Hillary is expected to take over State. We can also add two other Clinton insiders: Clinton impeachment lawyer Greg Craig who defended the worst of the Clinton scandals and who was also involved in the violent government raid that delivered Elian Gonzalez to Castro's Cuba. In fact, we believe Craig was working with the communist Cuban government. And...

    Nov 20, 2008 7:13 pm US/Central Obama Advisers To Public: Temper Expectations Reporting: Mike Flannery CHICAGO (CBS) ― President-elect Barack Obama and his inner circle fear that some voters expect him to turn around the economy, wind down the war in Iraq and, perhaps, cure cancer -- all by the Fourth of July. They know they must manage and lower those expectations, CBS 2 Political Editor Mike Flannery reports. A top economic advisor to Obama had a glum warning for the rest of us Thursday morning: Neither the job market nor the stock market will be turning around any time...
