Rahm Emanuel channels Cheney

Dan Balz has an interesting analysis in today's WaPo about Obama's ambitious agenda, "He Promised Change, but Is This Too Much, Too Soon?" Perhaps so, but I couldn't help but be struck (well, floored, to be perfectly candid) by the advice offered him by his chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, during the financial crisis:
"Never let a serious crisis go to waste."
I'm sure Dick Cheney had the very same advice for Bush and his people on 12 September 2001. It brought us the 2003 Iraq invasion and all that followed it, as well as the new tar baby called "Afpak."
